Oxford and St Georges Old Boys and Old Girls Clubs was formed in 1924 by Basil Henriques, who was an Oxford Graduate. The first club in the East End of London was held in Cannon Street Road; it expanded into bigger premises in Betts Street where the Girl's Club was added. By the 1920s, Henriques had raised sufficient money to erect a purpose-built boys and girls club and settlement, which provided a range of services to the local community, including a nursery, medical services, welfare, citizens' advice, free legal services, and a synagogue.
