West London Youth Clubs
ALL ABOARD! FOR THE HARROW CLUB
A shiny new bus has pulled in at The Harrow Club courtesy of The Leus Family Foundation. The deserving charity has six youth clubs across west London which will benefit with the much-needed transport option.
The Club has been working with the local community since 1883 and currently supports over 500 children. They help young people who are disadvantaged and/or suffering poverty with 80% of the children eligible for free school meals and 20% diagnosed with learning or disability issues.
Their network of clubs includes Harrow, Chelsea, Old Oak, Sands End, White City and Lancaster Road and welcomes children and young people between the ages of 8 and 21 years old. The bus donated by The Leus Family Foundation will facilitate the transfer of young people between their activities and the different sites and will also open up the possibility of easier outings for the groups.
Dmitry Leus, founder of the Foundation, said: “I am a huge admirer of the work that the Harrow Club does, both their long-standing programmes and also the way they step up to address the most pressing current needs. They have a real impact, helping the most marginalised young people to maximise their life chances and to enhance their personal development, getting them on the road to employment and building their resilience and well-being. It is a great pleasure to provide the bus as a practical support for this great work.”
Michael Defoe, CEO of The Harrow Club, welcomed the donation: “We are delighted to receive this contribution. It will make a great difference to us to be able to transport the young people we work with using our own bus. We are very proud of the quality of programmes we offer to help young people learn and engage and this practical assistance is greatly appreciated. A big thank you to The Leus Family Foundation.”
