Charlton open their Community Centre for Skills in Eltham

Clive Efford was invited to Charlton Athletic’s training ground in Eltham for the opening of their Community Centre for Skills.

The centre will engage with young people through sport and offer advice on health and the opportunity to learn skills for employment.

The centre is supported by Charlton’s charitable trust, Barclays Spaces for Sports and the Football foundation.

Also at the opening was the new Charlton manager Ian Dowie, striker Darren Bent, Rugby world-cup winner Will Greenwood and Olympic Hockey gold medallist Sean Kerly [pictured with Clive right] as well over a hundred children from local schools.

Speaking at Prime Ministers Question Time on Wednesday Clive invited Mr Blair to come along, or to send a message of support. The Prime Minister congratulated Charlton Athletic on the excellent work they are doing to engage with young people and help tackle crime and antisocial behaviour. He also added that the Club should be congratulated on keeping hold of Darren Bent on a new contract.
