Charity Goals

All money raised goes to support the vital work of the Harrow Club.

Funded and designed by Old Harrovians, The Harrow Club was formed in 1883 as The Harrow Mission Church. First Missioner,  William Law recognised the need for provision in the impoverished Notting Dale area and set up the mission with the desire to improve the quality of life for local people, aiding harmony and promoting opportunity. Since 1883, the Harrow Club has been anchored in the local community working with some of the most marginalised young people in West London to provide accessible and high-quality opportunities, enabling them to maximise their life chances and to enhance their personal development. The Harrow Club is not afraid to work at the most challenging fringes of our community in order to achieve the greatest impact.

Through general youth clubs and specialist interventions, The Harrow Club empowers young people to complete their education, avoid anti-social behaviour and become positive contributors to society.

Working with up to 500 young people each week across six clubs, The Harrow Club helps the young people it works with to recognise and fulfil their potential.”

The contribution through the Long Ducker has been extraordinary and has helped us both directly and indirectly to launch new initiatives such as a programme for young people with behavioural issues who would otherwise be excluded from school. Among other vital projects, we are helping young people who don’t have access to laptops at home so that they can access online schooling. We have been able to secure over 100 laptops, which we are making available to the neediest.’
