Love Sport? We are looking for volunteers to facilitate or support our NEW weekly Sporting Memories Club at Fleet Town FC where older sports fans share their love of sport.
If you have a couple of hours EVERY Friday 10am -12pm we'd love to hear from you.
The Sporting Memory groups support older people, predominately isolated men living 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.
No specific experience required as training is provided. You just need a love of sport and an ability to talk to people. However, if you have some understanding of the issues faced by older people, particularly those living with dementia, please mention this, as such knowledge will be helpful.
