Thank you to all our Trustees, Advisers, Vice-Presidents and our President; Individuals - for both your one-off donations or your regular gifts; Corporates, Trusts, Foundations and Livery Companies who help make St Andrew’s Club the precious community asset it is today.

“If serving young people were only about providing facilities, our Club would be little more than a sports centre. But St Andrew’s operates at the heart of its community, it has tradition; it has soul. It’s where young people undertake a host of activities in an environment of moral leadership, inspiration and support. It is a place in which respect for others is mandatory. And, something we never forget - it is a place where young people can, and should, have, fun”.
Barry Walsh, former member and former chairman of St Andrew’s Club

“St Andrew’s Club makes an enormous difference to the lives of so many young people in this community and beyond. The Club’s work and support during and following the lockdowns have been fantastic and incredibly necessary. St Andrew’s really is the beating heart of this community.”
Lord Strathclyde, the Club’s President, March 2022
"The work done at St Andrew’s has been so crucial during the pandemic and has continued to grow in its support of the community ever since. The Club opens young people’s minds, fuels their confidence, and offers them incredible opportunities.”
Cllr Andrew Smith Lord Mayor of Westminster, 2021-22
“If you do go to St Andrew’s Club, you will find an extraordinarily happy atmosphere, which is welcoming to all the young people who become members of the Club. Throughout this current pandemic, St Andrew’s Club has shown a leadership like no other and continues to be inclusive to as many children and young people as possible.”
Lord Strathclyde, the Club’s President, March 2021
“One of the positive parts of 2020 was building closer links with the youth hubs. It has been inspirational to see the work you do at St Andrew's for the local community and now the connection with the Family Hub is really positive.”
Jayne Vertkin, Head of Early Help, Family Services, City of Westminster, January 2021
“Happily, London is blessed by having many wonderful organisations like the St Andrew's Youth Club, who work tirelessly in the knowledge that they have helped those less fortunate than themselves - although few have been doing it quite so long!.”
Sir Kenneth Olisa OBE, HM Lord Lieutenant of Greater London, April 2020:
“There is knife crime, there is gang crime, there is gun crime. All of those things are deeply, deeply troubling and disturbing, and a place like St Andrew’s Club makes it possible to draw people away, who are at risk of being drawn in.”
Cllr Ruth Bush, Lord Mayor of Westminster, 2019-20
“St Andrew’s Club is such a triumph – and continues to live up to its long and proud reputation. Its purpose, support and distraction embodies all the good work needed to help the mental health and wellbeing of our local young people – my particular passion.”
Cllr Lindsey Hall, Lord Mayor of Westminster, 2018-19
“St Andrew’s Club has created an amazing legacy. I am passionate about social mobility and organisations like the Club with its stellar reputation across Westminster are highly regarded”.
Cllr Ian Adams, Lord Mayor of Westminster 2017-18

Cllr Nickie Aiken, Leader of Westminster City Council
“I can’t imagine how many lives St Andrew’s Club has changed in the course of 150 years”.
