Millwall Walking Sports Club
The Millwall Walking Sports Club programme supports older people and those with two or three limiting long term health conditions, dementia, mental health difficulties, limited mobility or those who are inactive, to stay fit and healthy.
The two hour weekly activities offer older people the opportunity to meet other people while having fun, stimulating the mind, and, developing balance and hand eye coordination. It offers an opportunity for a target audience that would not otherwise be active and may feel disengaged with the local community.
Before and after each activity, the group have open and individual conversations over refreshments which has very often allowed members to help each other by sharing life experiences and thus reducing stress, isolation and loneliness.
MCT works in partnership with the Southwark Pensioners Centre, SE London Alzheimer’s Society, the Dockland Settlements, the Bonamy and Bramcote TRA and Time and Talents.
MCT are currently delivering two weekly Walking Sports Clubs in Rotherhithe and Bermondsey and are soon to be starting another weekly session in East Dulwich.
