The Liberty Shopping Centre in Romford is set to support Ageless Teenagers in a bid to receive £50,000 of funding from The National Lottery through The People’s Project.
On Thursday April 4, Ageless Teenagers engaged with Little Market after school club to engage in an inter-generational exchange of experiences.
Ageless Teenagers is an amazing community group created and run by the UK’s first Gladiators winner, Weininger Irwin and his wife Janice, who have been running inclusive events at The Liberty for the past decade. The project welcomes residents of all backgrounds from Havering, Barking & Dagenham to regular social activities and aims to engage, celebrate and inspire members through activities such as musical exercise, meals and socialising.
The project has bought much happiness to the many ageless teenagers it supports.
Being at the Little Market after school club was an incredible experience for both the young and the old who loved mingling together. Shopping Centre Manager at The Liberty, Jonathan Poole said: “We are extremely excited to support Ageless Teenagers in their endeavours. Please vote to help Ageless Teenagers continuing their initiative within our community.”
Weininger, said: “Ageless Teenagers is for people of all ages but mainly focusing on the senior and elderly community to come and enjoy an afternoon Carribean tea party which started with 28 attendees and has now grown to over 300 residents. It is now so much more and creates an afternoon for seniors to enjoy the mix of fun, love and energy. Receiving funding from The People’s Project will allow us to continue this work and provide community building events.”
