Northwood Area Women's Club

Activities

We warmly welcome you to join us for friendship, fun and fundraising. We have a wide range of activities, including various interest groups that meet weekly, bi-monthly or monthly depending on the activity, monthly general meetings that feature a variety of guest speakers and other events. Within these activities we incorporate fundraising to benefit a local charity, which is chosen annually by our members.

Interest Groups

The best way to get to know other members and develop new skills and interests is to join one or more of our interest groups. Everyone is welcome to participate, whether you are a novice or highly experienced. These activities may change depending on the interests of current members. Members can suggest ideas for future activities or start a new interest group should they have an interest that is not currently addressed.

  • Fundraising

    Each year NAWC selects a local charity and raises funds to assist their work. These funds are raised at various club events and activities throughout the year. Over the past 25 years, NAWC has raised over £63,233 for various local charities. The beneficiaries of our fundraising efforts have included Mount Vernon Cancer Centre Charitable Trust, Michael Sobell Hospice and Hillingdon Women's Centre.

    In May 2022, we presented Mission EmployAble with a cheque for £2,750, the proceeds of our fundraising efforts over the previous year. This registered charity aims to train people with learning difficulties, employing some and helping others to find work so they can lead fulfilled lives and contribute to their communities. A new purpose-built pavilion on the Chorleywood Cricket Club site is in process, in which Mission EmployAble will run a training cafe / tea room for cricketers and the community.


    Our charity for 2022/23 is the Centre for ADHD & Autism Support. This registered charity aims to support, educate and empower individuals diagnosed with ADHD or who are autistic, their families and the community. They do this by raising awareness to change perceptions and break down barriers. CAAS provides support and understanding in a safe and non-judgemental environment.


    The money that NAWC raises over the coming year will help the Centre for ADHD & Autism Support achieve their aims of providing support, educating parents and professionals about ADHD and autism and empowering individuals with ADHD and austim to reach their full potential.
