We rely on sponsors for our many projects and activities. Read how they help here.

Sponsors play a crucial role in the work we do at Brunswick Youth and Community Centre.

As a registered charity, we rely on a mix of public and private funding to provide our services for the benefit of the community in Bootle, Sefton, Liverpool, and beyond.

Membership of Brunswick Youth and Community Centre is FREE, and many of our activities are free of charge to members. We rely on donationssponsors, partners, bequests, and others to continue our mission.

Here’s just some of the sponsors we want to thank (click on the logos to go to their websites):

Cammell Laird sponsors Brunswick Youth and Community Centre.

This world-famous company, based in Birkenhead, has been a long and loyal supporter of The Brunny. Playing a vital role in our ongoing success, Cammell Laird has been instrumental in the Michael Marshall Memorial Golf Day at Royal Liverpool Golf Club. This annual event, which Cammell Laird Limited (as Northwestern Shiprepairers Limited) has been the event’s sponsor since it’s inception in 2002, raises money for Brunswick Youth and Community Centre and pays tribute to our co-founder, Michael Marshall, a former member of Royal Liverpool Golf Club.

Liverpool’s Brunswick Boys Club (now Brunswick Youth and Community Centre) was co-founded by Michael Marshall.

Cammell Laird also came to our aid when we had an unusual problem. When we developed our garden and play area we wanted to incorporate a feature which would be decorative, represent our heritage, and safe for children. The answer: a boat!

We invited children from All Saints Catholic Primary School, which is across the road from The Brunny, to submit designs. The winning design was taken by these world-class shipbuilders and used to create a unique, and permanent, structure. It is a highlight of our garden and play area, and a firm favourite among our many childrens’ groups.

23 Foundation sponsors Brunswick Youth and Community Centre.

No one embodies the spirit and determination of Bootle more than former Liverpool and England footballer Jamie Carragher. A familiar face around The Brunny, Jamie went on to pursue an impressive career in football which saw him represent Liverpool FC for 17 years, notching up 737 appearances for the club.

A rare one-club man, his loyalty to his club and the people of Bootle have been shown time and time again. His 23 Foundation is supporting youth in Merseyside, the UK, and beyond to “achieve their dreams”.

In the video below, Jamie explains the work of his foundation to The Professional Footballers’ Association. Filmed in part at Brunswick Youth and Community Centre, Centre Manager Keith Lloyd shows how their generous donation has made an impact locally and thanks Jamie for his “massive contribution”:

The Jamie Carragher Sports and Learning Academy, (which is based at Brunswick Youth and Community Centre) is helping school leavers aged 16-19 to gain BTEC qualifications and employment.

Jamie is hosting a special dinner in aid of Brunswick Youth and Community Centre on 11 March 2016. Come and have a great night out with him and help support the work we do. Click here for more details.

Donoghue Solicitors sponsors Brunswick Youth and Community Centre.

Like Jamie Carragher and our Centre Manager, Keith Lloyd, Kevin Donoghue, Solicitor Director of Donoghue Solicitors, was a member of The Brunny in his youth.

He is a long-time supporter of the club who previously volunteered leading youth groups on “away days”. He is a regular visitor to the Centre and a close friend of Manager Keith Lloyd.

Kevin went to school in Bootle, still lives nearby, recruits locally where possible, and is fiercely loyal to his North Liverpool roots.

His firm now provides us with website hosting and development services, technical and marketing support, and financial sponsorship (for example, making a cash donation to Brunswick Youth and Community Centre instead of sending Christmas cards).
