Welling up here, so proud of our club, what a great article, do our neighbours do anything similar ?

They do bits. They have a dedicated team of people who do stuff out in the community but not to the level we do.

They don't have a school or a community hub, for example

Whenever I've worked with their community team though they have been very professional and they seem keen to improve what they do

Most clubs do similar but we have taken it to a different level. Have to say that sometimes it feels a bit forced and that when outside agencies come in to raise money then EitC has to get an equal share or it doesn't happen. I'm not sure thats always the best approach but it helps raise the profile of the clubs own charity more and more.

The help EitC gives those it comes into contact with us vital and is rightly applauded.
