First-team players Lois Roche, Corinne Henson, Hannah Godfrey and Ella Rutherford all attended the launch of Charlton Athletic Athletic Community Trust's newest programme on Saturday, January 21st.
The programme is set to be run continuously as part of the Premier League's Kicks Programme that CACT delivers across Greenwich and Bexley. CACT's Early Help & Prevention team will be running this free session at Charlton Athletic's Training Ground in New Eltham, utilising coaches with experience of working with young people with special educational needs.
Midfielder Roche highlighted the importance of the programme as well as the squad's visibility within the community:
"It is great that the community trust has listened to coaches and parents, and by giving the girls an extra training session, it gives them a safer space to develop and learn more."
“The work that CACT does is fantastic, we love getting involved and it is brilliant to see as many girls as possible in the game and enjoying it."
Details on future session dates will be made available via CACT’s social media channels.
