Waters Economics team members headed up the economic aspects of an assessment of the economic and community impacts of the Club’s activities. The team also supported the development and implementation of the assessment of community impacts.

The community assessment focused on the club’s wide range of charitable donations, including contributions to arts, education, sports, health and community care projects and programmes.
