Help Our Mardyke Community Centre

Our beloved Mardyke Community Centre Needs Our Help!

For many years our community centre has served our local community in so many ways, MYCC provides a space for services to be run from and serve many of our families be it our local drama groups, IT Training group’s, after school’s clubs, hall space for private parties and before lockdown Citizen’s Advice Bureau.

The above is only just some of what Mardyke Community Centre and their staff offer, I can think of 2 occasions where MYCC and their Staff went above and beyond and came to the aid of local residents in a time of crisis.

May 2016 Orchard Village Resident found to be making Bombs, https://www.thesun.co.uk/archives/news/1221124/pervert-loner-sparked-mass-evacuation-by-making-bomb-in-his-oven-in-bid-to-kill-himself-after-police-found-his-huge-stash-of-child-porn/

MYCC and their staff opened the centre up to assist emergency services and personnel by providing drinks and toilet facilities, they also provided information to concerned residents of Orchard Village.

In 2015 MYCC offered space to evacuate children from local Newtons School as a huge gas leak was detected around the school site.

Many occasions MYCC has come to the aid of their community with no expectations in return.

You may have read on Social Media that MYCC has been awarded a grant from Clarion Housing, whilst this is good news and amazing that Clarion has done this it comes with certain criteria’s, firstly the payment will be split and secondly it is only to be used in certain areas.

MYCC are extremely grateful for the help Clarion Housing are providing.

MYCC costs on average £5000pm to run, normally the Centre is self-funded and operates renting out room space and covers its bills.
COVID has put pay to a lot of fundraising opportunities and MYCC is unable to run their weekly groups which generates money to keep it open.

We Daniel Beal and Ross Elliott need your help, If you don’t know us by now we are both local Independent Resident activists who live in the area that MYCC serves. We both feel very strongly that MYCC has to remain and needs our support.

Daniel Beal personally contacted MR Damien White back in October 2020 pleading for some support or rent relief, MYCC has been described by other Councillors as a Havering flag ship community centre, to date we are still awaiting a reply.

MYCC needs a water heater, new shutters for the canteen, new updated IT suite, as well as help with covering costs for general maintenance.

If you can afford to make a donation being cash or items the MYCC can sell and generate money from would be very welcome.
We have set up this Go Fund me Page where all payments will go direct to MYCC.

Thank You in advance
Daniel Beal and Ross Elliott
