Earls Court and Olympia (EC&O)
Venues is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Charitable Trust by
partnering with a new children’s support campaign launched by
Hammersmith and Fulham Council.
The new Opportunity Fund aims to give children looked after by the council access to the same opportunities for personal development as their peers. Support could include extra tuition, sports equipment or driving lessons. The scheme launched on 20 October at Hammersmith Town Hall and EC&O Venues offered the first business donation of £5,000.
The Opportunity Fund will now be part of the venue’s Charitable Trust, which has raised more than £200,000 for local causes since its inception. Other charities it has supported include Horniman’s Adventure Playground, Children’s Safety Education Foundation, Age Concern - Kensington and Chelsea and the local Victim’s Support.
“We can’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate the Charitable Trust’s landmark tenth anniversary than supporting such a worthwhile and rewarding cause,” EC&O Venues Commercial Director Anna Golden said.
generous contribution from EC&O will make a real difference to the
lives of our looked after children and has enabled us to get the
Opportunity Fund up and running,” added Helen Binmore, Hammersmith and
Fulham Council Cabinet Member for Children’s Services.
