Description

Love to talk about sport? Sporting Memories clubs are for older people to come together to talk and reminisce about sport. As well as a friendly welcome their volunteers provide fun and inclusive social and physical activities on a weekly basis. They want you to share your sporting passions with them and tell them about your favourite teams, special sporting moments and heroes. All over a cuppa and a biscuit with like-minded people. Everyone is welcome to attend a Sporting Memories club. Some – but not all – of their members are living with dementia or low mood or are isolated; others simply enjoy the opportunity to meet other people. If you know a family member, neighbour, or colleague who you think would benefit from coming along to a weekly club please tell them about this club at the Gorebridge Leisure Centre.
