RPT announced as RBKC Mayoral Charity for 2022/23

The Rugby Portobello Trust is honoured to announce that we have been chosen as one of the RBKC Mayoral Charities for 2022/23, along with our partners at The ClementJames Centre.

We're looking forward to working closely with newly elected Mayor David Lindsay and Deputy Mayor Janet Evans and continuing our collaborative partnership with our friends at The ClementJames Centre. 


Mayor of Kensington and Chelsea, Cllr David Lindsay said:

"It is a great honour to have been elected Mayor of Kensington and Chelsea. 

My two Mayoral Charities, the Rugby Portobello Trust and The ClementJames Centre who’ve worked in North Kensington for many years, played a vital role in the time of emergency following the Grenfell Tragedy, and continue to work hard supporting the North Kensington community to this day. 

I really look forward to working with these two fantastic charities and with the Deputy Mayor to champion opportunities for young people in our borough.

This year also marks Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and I am excited to celebrate this momentous occasion with residents across the Royal Borough."


Mark Simms, CEO of Rugby Portobello Trust, said:

"There are many amazing charities in Kensington and Chelsea doing incredible work, so we’re very honoured to have been chosen as one of the Mayor’s charities of the year.

We’re looking forward to working closely with both the Mayor’s office and ClementJames Centre to continue our important work supporting children and young people in the borough."
