Leftley Sports Club (LSC), in association with Barking & Dagenham (LBBD) Community Health, are now an accredited healthy lifestyle partner for the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham.

As part of the partnership the borough has formally invited LSC to nominate at least three people to become Community Health Champions.

Chairman Muhammed Ali said: “As a community health group we’re really pleased with the way we have been able to inspire hard-to-reach residents to engage in sporting activities.

“It’s exciting that we are receiving advice and support to continue with our activities.”

Nominees will partake in a Community Health Champions programme and be offered the Royal Society of Public Health’s (RSPH) accredited training.

LSC’s run, walk and talk sessions at Mayesbrook Park are free of charge and held every Saturday from 10.30am.
