Extra Time

Charlton Athletic Community Trust's Extra Time Hub is returning to in-person sessions from Wednesday 30 June 2021. In the meantime, Zoom classes like Zumba gold, Exercise with Pat and a weekly coffee morning continue. For more information about CACT's Extra Time Hub or help accessing online sessions, please email matt.phillips@cact.org.uk.


CACT's Extra Time Hub is a chance for those aged 55+ to get together once a week to take part in a wide variety of activities, from curling to singing for health and exercise to music. The aim of the hub is bringing together retired and semi-retired people to engage them in active ageing. Whatever it is you want to do, there is something for everyone. 

The programme, which runs on Wednesday mornings, is funded by the EFL Trust, Sport England and the National Lottery. 

In October 2019, Jo Churchill, Under-Secretary of State for Health, visited the Extra Time Hub at The Valley as part of the launch of the National Academy of Social Prescribing.

Linda Gray, CACT's Extra Time Hub Activator, who was previously a participant, said:

"We go on a Wednesday and there's lots of things to do. If you've got time, please come along - you will enjoy it.

"You'll meet new people, you can chat to new people; even if you are on your own, you can come and we'll make you welcome."

Come along each Wednesday from 10am, at The Valley, Charlton, Floyd Road, SE7 8BL

Extra Time is from 10am-12pm on Wednesdays and costs £3 a session or £10 a month

Extra Time sessions were paused in March 2020 but support has continued online, including through weekly singalong sessions. Extra Time members also collaborated with participants from CACT’s Premier League Primary Stars programme, with young people writing letters to those who are having to self isolate.
