The Sporting Memories Foundation and Havebury

Havebury Housing Partnership have teamed up with The Sporting Memories Foundation. This is to encourage the over 50’s to engage and reminisce over their love of sport.

The Foundation host events and groups all over the country. Inviting any sports fans over the age of 50 to meet and reminisce about playing or watching sport.

Plus, the opportunity to take part in physical activities and accessible sports.

Richard Hunt, Suffolk Project Coordinator for Sporting Memories joined Mel Warner, Ella Barnett & Hayley Lambert from Havebury Housing at the first successful session last week at Havebury’s independent living scheme, St Edmunds Place in Bury St Edmunds.

Everyone that came along had the opportunity to discuss their favourite sporting memory. Havebury also insured everyone had a cuppa’ and a slice of cake.

The group discussed sporting legends and what sport they liked to play at school.

They also played a game of ‘guess the tune’.

The session ended on a very competitive yet enjoyable game of Bocce (very like British bowls).

The Sporting Memories Foundation (Registered Charity Number 1154474) is the World’s first charity dedicated to Sports Reminiscence & Physical Activities.

The foundation supports older people living in England and Wales by engaging them in social activities.

By encouraging and helping them to recall memories of watching or playing sport.

By sharing memories of sporting moments they help people to connect with others and with their past.

Reawakening positive thoughts and feelings that otherwise remain hidden away.

Did you know we have great options for those wanting to live independently.
