ECYC is a registered charity and must raise our own money in order to survive so fundraising and sponsorship is vital to our existence.
Presently the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) is the main source of income for the club, covering the salaries of both full-time and part-time youth work staff. We are very fortunate that at a time when many boroughs local and nationally have abandoned their youth provision the Royal Borough remains so supportive and appreciates so well the importance of ECYC to the lives of our members and also to the life of the local community within which we exist.
As well as all the sponsors who made the modernisation of the club possible and to whom we continue to pay tribute, ECYC would like to thank the Feathers Association, Foyle Foundation, John Lyon’s Charity and Positive Choices for valuable donations during the year. It is too difficult to mention all the schemes and agencies who help us with small amounts for particular projects over the year but to all of them, and to and Youth Opportunities Fund in particular, a large thank you.
We are delighted that Dame Diana Rigg DBE continues to act as our President and continues to take such an interest in the club’s members and their progress.
