Charlie Baines (Youth & Children's Worker)
Charlie started as Youth and Children's worker in November 2016. Prior to this, he spent three months volunteering in an orphanage in South Africa, which is where he really developed a passion for youth work. After that, Charlie completed an apprenticeship in Business Administration before joining the team at Kennet Valley!
Charlie has lived in Reading his whole life. He gave his life to Jesus as a child and was baptised in 2012. He is passionate about sport, particularly football and he is player manager of Tilehurst Albion, who play in the Thames Valley Church Football League. If he's not in church or playing football then you'll probably find him in the nearest Nando's!
