‘Extra Time Hubs’ is a national project from the EFL Trust and will initially be delivered by 12 EFL Clubs including Derby County Community Trust! The Hubs harness the power of football clubs in the local communities to bring people together aged 55 and over.
Studies show that 42% of those over the age of 55 are inactive. EFL Trust’s own research revealed many people would like the opportunity to meet peers to feel less isolated, live well and do things they enjoy.
The scheme aims to make a positive difference to the lives of retired and semi-retired people and for them to find out about the range of activities on offer in their free time as well as give them the chance to meet and spend time with other like-minded people from the area.
The Trust offer several activities such as quizzes, games, arts and crafts, music, singing, table tennis, films, talks, walks or just sitting and having a chat over a cup of tea – it is your choice!
Our hub launched in April and takes place on a fortnightly basis, located at The Yard at Pride Park Stadium between 10.00am and 12.00pm, with just £3 to pay for unlimited tea and coffee. Get in touch if you want to come along so we can tell you which weeks we’re running!
