Ageless Teenagers

Posted on: 12/02/2019

On Friday 8th February 2019, Mayfield's Sports Leaders were invited to attend an ITV televised lottery bid for a community project know as Ageless Teenagers based at the Ilford Sports Centre.

The community project focuses on senior citizens in our Redbridge community, as well as the surrounding London boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Waltham Forest, and Newham. The Ageless teenagers meet regularly for a social, which includes a meal, gentle exercise and a 'good old knees up' and chit-chat.

Our students were invited to mingle with the Ageless Teenagers and glean some important advice and guidance about being a teenager and growing up informed and safe.

Our students then went on to serve meals and dance in a Caribbean style to some of the tunes played in the '50s, '60s, and '70s.

The programme will be aired early April 2019 on ITV before the Saturday weekly lottery draw. The 5 shortlisted projects, of which Ageless Teenagers is one,  will then go to the public vote to decide who will receive the lottery grant of £50,000.

We will keep you posted so that we can influence that vote and secure that grant for Ilford.
