The Ealing Eagles Charitable Foundation (a charity registered with the Charity Commission in 2018) was set up to promote health and wellbeing in Ealing and the surrounding areas. The foundation aims to ensure that Ealing Eagles Running Club can provide a safe environment for children and adults to take up and keep running, both now and in the long term.
Nigel Panton is the Chair of the Trustee board, which meets every 6-8 weeks. We would like to thank James de Vivenot for all his hard work as a trustee, as he has decided to stand down this month. At the same time, we welcome Sarah Dhanda, who became a new trustee this month and is already keeping us on our toes as we develop our strategic priorities.
The charitable foundation is independent of the Eagles, but obviously retains strong links with the club. For example, all of the current trustees are members of the Eagles. This year, the foundation is one of the club’s nominated charities.
We will aim to feedback on the foundation’s activities several times during the year, as discussed at the Eagle’s AGM. Increasing communication between the charity and the club over time will enable us to update members with feedback from our meetings with the local authority, other community organisations and local clubs.
By taking a long term view (outside of the Eagles Committee) we aim to ensure the Eagles continues to be the asset to the community it has been for the last 10 years. Onwards and upwards!
