Chairman’s Chosen Charity for 2021-22

Our Chairman has chosen The Rainbow Centre as his selected charity for the Club’s support during 2021-22.

The Rainbow Centre was established in 1997 to offer practical support to vulnerable people in the local community. Since then, they have grown and offer an open door to anyone in need of help with any issues they are facing, offering compassion, support and hope.

Each year they make around 12,500 critical interventions, offering assistance to vulnerable people during their difficult circumstances and beyond.

They are a small team of dedicated staff and volunteers who believe in fairness and equality and they are very grateful for the support of the community in helping them to continue to provide their many services and facilities.

This support can provide assistance such as an emergency food parcel, a hot meal in their community cafe, access to shower and laundry facilities, clean clothing, bedding and other household essentials. They believe people should have access to the most basics of needs.

My chosen charity for my year in office is The Rainbow Centre, Scarborough. The Charity offers assistance and guidance to all types of vulnerable people, including the homeless, and debt advice. I feel this type of charity will benefit from the level of donations we are able to commit to, having a greater impact than to much to larger charities.
