Upcoming rock concert to support mental health for young people in Harrow

A rock concert taking place this coming Thursday, 15th of September by contemporary rock and dance band, Jam Sandwich, will be in support of mental health for young people in Harrow.

The band’s performance at the Clapham Grand promises to be full of rock and dance covers, with all the proceeds going to Young Harrow Foundation and the Charlie Waller Trust UK.

Mental health is a key area of concern in Harrow right now, especially for young people. In the How Are You Harrow report (https://youngharrowfoundation.org/HAYHarrow), a recent survey of over 6,000 local young people, 65% said they “sometimes” or “often” feel anxious or depressed.

The money raised from this concert will be going out to fund local mental health support services and partnerships here in Harrow, through Young Harrow Foundation.

This event is being organised by the parents of students at Harrow School, who are keen to continue supporting local young people in Harrow.

Tim Dalton, Director of Shaftesbury Enterprise, said: “Young people have been through a really tough time and we are deeply saddened to see the rise in anxiety and depression amongst young people in the borough.

“We are pleased to be able to support YHF to help young people in Harrow and are proud that a group of our pupils, ex-pupils and parents are working so hard to raise vital funds to help young people with their mental health.”

Doors open at 7pm, with Ladybyrd hitting the stage at 8pm. After that, it’s time for the main event with Jam Sandwich coming on to perform to a packed-out crowd.
