Fleetwood Town Community Trust: Sporting Memories from Poolfoot Farm

We are working in partnership with The Sporting Memories Foundation , this is the World’s first charity dedicated to Sports Reminiscence & Physical Activities.

We support older people living in England and Wales with dementia, depression and loneliness by engaging them in social activities and helping them to recall memories of watching or playing sport. By sharing memories of sporting moments and tapping into a passion for sport we help people to connect with others and with their past, reawakening positive thoughts and feelings that otherwise remain hidden away.

Using images of sport and memorabilia, older people are assisted to stay connected to their friends and communities, cognitively stimulated and physically active. The volunteer led, intergenerational Sporting Memories groups help people over the age of 50 age well and remain as healthy as possible.

This specific session meets at 14.00 for an hour at Poolfoot farm on a Wednesday.

What we do:

Using images of sport and memorabilia, older people are assisted to stay connected to their friends and communities, cognitively stimulated and physically active. The volunteer led, intergenerational Sporting Memories groups help people over the age of 50 age well and remain as healthy as possible. A wealth of evidence on ageing well has highlighted the impact remaining connected to friends, family and communities, remaining cognitively stimulated and physically active can have on our health and wellbeing. Sporting Memories groups have proven to help participants, many of whom are living with dementia to do just this.

Activities:

Our session from PoolFoot farm is on a Wednesday at 14.00 for an hour.
