Team100 Charlton needs you: Get active and help your neighbours

Team100 volunteers in the Cherry Orchard Estate

Want to get out and about and volunteer in your local community? Team100 Charlton helps local people in SE7 take part in healthy activities to benefit their neighbours. JAKE TULLETT explains more…

Team100 Charlton is a community-led volunteering based in Charlton, Greenwich and is designed to get more residents volunteering in community sport and physical activity. The project is working with several local partners to create new, accessible and flexible opportunities to encourage a new group of residents to make a difference in and around Charlton.

Charlton is home to an amazingly diverse offer of cycling, walking and sporting opportunities for young people that all need volunteer backing.

Greenwich BMX, based in Hornfair Park, need local people to support with coaching, equipment maintenance, marketing, admin and events.

Women on Wheels, also based in Hornfair Park, is a group of like-minded women who want to build up their cycling skills. Support needed to market the session and generally assist. Why not volunteer whilst you ride?

Travel Buddies – Working in partnership with Greenwich Parent Voice, we are looking for residents to become Travel Buddies and support young disabled people walk or cycle to school. Travel Buddies will be paired with a young person based on location, making it as easy as possible to have a massive impact on a young person’s life, on the way to work! All required training funded by Team100 Charlton.

Healthy Walks – Get local people active by joining Charlton Athletic Community Trust‘s healthy walks scheme, becoming a walk leader. You will meet lots of new people and even get active yourself! Based at Charlton House.

#ActiveCharlton – Once a year, we work with Charlton Manor, Cherry Orchard, Windrush Charlton and Charlton Triangle Homes to put on a week-long calendar of activity for children. In 2019, we held walking buses, fun-runs, closed roads outside of school, did yoga and held our very own Bike Bus! All the activities were supported by our amazing Team100 Charlton volunteers.

Team100 Charlton volunteers receive a personal training journey, where we support you to gain qualifications, take part in workshops and all vetting is also funded.
