HELPING THE PEOPLE OF CLAREMONT

Through the enormous generosity of some amazing and lovely people, we have now raised enough money to start the work to transform our building! We’re so excited and so grateful for the support. The Claremont 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.

We’ll be putting up more information about what happens next as soon as we can.

In the meantime, 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.

Paul, you're quoting a singer, not a builder.

Wow exciting times!

The demolition work is going at full speed! Pretty amazing to get glimpses into it and exciting to get a real feel for how it will be. Builders accidentally cut all phone lines today though, so apologies if you’ve had trouble reaching us!

We can't wait for our Buckingham Palace State Apartments tour tomorrow - and we understand they are also having a bit of work done, but hopefully less noisy and dusty than it is here! ... See MoreSee Less
