HELPING THE PEOPLE OF CLAREMONT

Through the enormous generosity of some amazing and lovely people, we are now transforming the Claremont building! We’re so grateful for the support. The building, which has been an important part of Islington’s community for over 100 years, will be around for many thousands of older people, and for the community at large, for at least another 100 years.

The work is largely focused on the ground floor. There will be a proper entrance reception area and front office, beautiful new toilets, exposed, high ceilings, and a fabulous new members’ area in the lower ground floor area. We’re also putting in a platform lift to all floors. The work is scheduled to finish by the end of January 2020. Most of our activities are carrying on as normal – please see the timetable for locations.

We still need help!

It costs us a lot to run so many high quality classes and events and we are not funded by Central Government or the NHS. We’re a small charity and need to raise all the money needed from good people like you – people who care about others having opportunities for friendship, community, and lives which flourish! Can you help us reach particularly isolated older people? Can you contribute to keep Claremont’s amazing services going? The vast majority of what we raise is spent directly on our charitable services and we make the most of every penny.

Will you help?

The Flamenco Dancers de Claremont! A short clip from our Variety Show, Summer 2018, this time from another fairly recently formed group. As with the Ukulele group, the Flamenco Dancers mostly had never danced this style before joining. There’s also now a Castanets group! Click the “Expand in all Directions” icon to see full screen.
