The Cray Wanderers Community Scheme provides an education and mentoring service to the community through SPORT, MUSIC and ART, to help EMPOWER, ENHANCE and INSPIRE lives.
The scheme works with young people in the Greenwich, Bromley, Lewisham and Bexley areas, engaging with young people aged from 5 to 18. We run clubs that help them improve their physical and mental wellbeing, and we aim to achieve this by providing them with a safe and fun-filled environment for constructive exercise and activities.
The young people who participate in our clubs benefit from an improved sense of self-worth and belonging, achieved primarily through sport. However, the scheme has now expanded by engaging with young people through Music, Art and Speech as well.
The Scheme was founded in 2009 by ex-Cray Wanderers Football Club star Tyrone Sterling, and close friend and fan of the club Reggie Oliver.
