Community/Vocational

Our club, amongst others, has provided drivers and passenger assistants for MS Croydon meetings and outings. We support organisations like Nightwatch financially.


It is the responsibility of the whole club to deliver their services to the community but the Community and Vocational Committee supports the Club on a range of voluntary activities.

The main focus of our community work has been to support the MS Society Croydon by providing drivers and escorts for their fortnightly meetings and special trips, but this has been halted during the pandemic. 

We try to provide help for local people whether through fund raising or direct help. During the pandemic our main focus has been emergency support like food banks, the homeless through Nightwatch and mental health issues through MIND.
Before the pandemic our direct financial help was in the form of small grants, for example £250 to a uniform boys group in Thornton Heath to replace bits of their bagpipes and £700 for a local girl guide hut. We value the role of young people in our community but we also try to be aware of the needs of the elderly.

The vocational element is delivered by visiting local businesses and organisations to widen our understanding of how our community works. We may have visited a brewery more than once!
