Who We Are...

Who We Are

The Harrow African-Caribbean Association (HACAS) is a voluntary community organisation formed in 1991 to bring together the African-Caribbean people, who live in Harrow.

Through our motto 'Unity is Strength' we aim to promote the well-being and interest of our members; provide them with a meeting place; support individuals including the youth and elderly; take up their concerns with statutory bodies such as Local and Central Government in respect of Health, Education, Employment and Training; provide leisure and cultural activities for members and the wider community.

The Committee and Members of HACAS are sad to hear of the passing Christopher Johnson. We send our deepest sympathy to Wife Ethel and family with our regret that we are not able to gather personally to support them at this time because of lockdown.
Chris was a valued member especially of our Friday Luncheon Club. He never missed unless there was a clash with family or Hospital appointments. Fellow members appreciated his no nonsense, calm good sense as well as his dry humour. The dominoes posse will not be the same without him.

So long Chris RIP

The Luncheon Club is currently suspended due to COVID-19
