I would like to thank everyone who has added their signature to my petition to re-instate the council funding for The Brunswick Club’s teenage provision.

The Labour-run Hammersmith & Fulham Council are ending The Brunswick Club's funding for teenagers. It will no longer receive any financial support from the council for their youth provision for 11 to 19 year-olds. Local teenagers need The Brunswick Club. Help me protect its funding, by signing my petition!
