West Ham United Football Club are supporting Newham Giving Day

 October 2018
 
We are delighted that West Ham United Football Captain, Mark Noble met youth workers and children from Ambition, Aspire, Achieve to celebrate and support Newham Giving Day.
 
 
Stephanie, our Head of Development went to the stadium last Saturday and was amazed with the support of the fans, as she described:
 
We are thrilled that West Ham United Football Club and their captain Mark Noble have joined us in our mission to provide vital support to children and parents across Newham through our Newham Giving initiative. East London has a proud history of working together to overcome its challenges and so it’s no surprise at all that West Ham United Football Club have given their support to the EECF and Newham Giving”.
 
Many more companies and organisations are joining forces with us to support our initiative; the Strawberry Star Group team celebrated with us and Stephen Timms MP for East Ham in their stylish new office in Newham.  We also have Aqua Hair Spa, Cervello Financial Planners, Holiday Inn & Staybridge Suites Hotel, Stratford City running dedicated activities to raise money for our local giving programme.

Newham Giving is an innovative local giving programme run by East End Community Foundation that supports community projects that provide a lifeline to families struggling to provide activities for children and young people during the school holidays. 30% of the population in Newham is aged under twenty. Two in every five children are considered to be living in poverty so free and low-cost, school holiday activities are vital for supporting local families in need throughout the holidays.

Stephen Timms, MP for East Ham and Newham Giving Ambassador said,

Newham Giving supports essential school holiday youth projects.  It is great to see young people positively engaged throughout the school holiday, thanks to the Newham Giving support.  Through these vital Summer & October projects, youngsters are developing, some becoming impressive youth leaders in their own right. Please give generously.”
