Based at the Ricoh Arena, Sky Blues in the Community is the official charity arm of Coventry City Football Club. 


We know that professional football clubs provide an attractive platform for engaging people from all walks of life and this puts us in a unique position to address local priorities and national issues. We build on this platform by delivering innovative and quality activities across four main themes (Sport, Health, Inclusion and Education). We see it as our responsibility to utilise our position for the benefit of the community in Coventry and Warwickshire.

 

With that in mind, the vision for the organisation is ‘Change lives in our local community’ 


This vision is supported by our organisational mission statement, which is Use the reach and appeal of Coventry City Football Club to make a difference to the lives of people across Coventry and Warwickshire’

The Jimmy Hill Legacy Fund is a fundraising initiative in order to provide opportunities to improve the quality of life for those who need it most, in memory of the late Jimmy Hill OBE.
Jimmy Hill played a huge role during his time with Coventry City, a period which saw him take the positions of Manager, Managing Director and Chairman of the club driving the ‘Sky Blue Revolution’ in the 1960s and 1970s.
Jimmy Hill’s success had a huge impact on the city of Coventry and the Legacy Fund will provide a fitting tribute in his memory, supporting a number of causes that were close to his heart.
The causes that will benefit from the Legacy Fund are:
To provide activities for children and adults with disabilities (through activities run by SBitC)
To provide opportunities for disadvantaged children and young people in Coventry and Warwickshire (delivered by SBitC)
Support and increase the activities on match days in the Sky Blues Family Zone (run by volunteers)
To provide small grant awards to local voluntary and community organisationsAbout Sky Blues in the Community
