LEC Croydon, Surrey and Sussex owes its thanks to many corporate, Local Authority and charitable donations from the region and local Rotary Clubs who have all helped raise funds to contribute to the on-going costs of this programme. Each mobile classroom with its on-board equipment costs around £80,000 to purchase. The ongoing costs for running each mobile classroom plus the salary of a trained Educator approximates to a further £35,000 per annum.
