With the excellent recent news that the Breyer Group will be sponsoring the stadium for a further season, this will also mean another opportunity for the Breyer Foundation to once again fundraise for a worthwhile cause on a matchday.

Last season, the Foundation organised volunteers to raise funds for the Richard House Children’s Hospice utilising the Club’s East stand Diversity hub as a central meeting point where they received a warm welcome along with their match ticket!

This season, not only was it a positive result on the pitch when the O’s played Cambridge United recently but thanks to the generosity of fans from both teams, there was also cause for delight for the JE3 Foundation as over £500 was collected prior to kick-off.

The Breyer Foundation’s Aims & Activities are: For the public benefit to promote education of long term and short term unemployed, to promote citizenship or community development by developing capacity of socially disadvantaged communities, the relief of unemployment for the benefit of the public, the promotion- for the benefit of the public- of urban or rural regeneration in areas of social and economic deprivation.

Alexandra Taylor-Vella, co-ordinator for the Breyer Foundation said afterwards: “I’d like to personally thank all the fantastic fans who volunteered to help with the bucket collection and raised such a wonderful amount. It was also lovely to see the children involved and having fun on the flag parade. We’ve formed a great association with the Club and look forward to many more events throughout the year”.
