Elephant & Castle’s Virtual Community Hub adds their Choir and Disability Sports Coach live sessions to line up


Elephant & Castle’s ‘Virtual Community Hub’ (www.communityhubSE1.co.uk), set up to help locals through the quarantine period, and which has gone from strength to strength since launching five weeks ago, is excited to announce it is adding even more online activities to its free activity line-up this week.

The Virtual Community Hub, which is already home to many of the free activities the physical Community Hub hosted pre-lock down, is now adding a Virtual Community Choir and Disability Sports Coach live sessions to its offering.

Starting this Wednesday at 6:30 – 7:30pm via Zoom, the Community Hub choir, who performed live at The Globe last Christmas, will take to their living rooms to sing feel-good songs. See below for how to get involved!

Also launching this week is the Disability Sports Coach’s live sessions, getting disabled people in the local community active. Live on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:30-4:00pm you can find the details on how to join through the Community Hub website.
