Getting Active with Sporting Memories

Steve Elliott at Leyland FC

With support from Sport England’s Active Ageing programme, Sporting Memories is able to get more people over 50 physically and mentally active and fit.

Tony Jameson-Allen and Chris Wilkins founded Sporting Memories because reminiscence and sport brings people and communities together through moments that mean something to everyone.

Sporting Memories have established clubs up and down the country to support people over 50 living with dementia, depression and loneliness and those that care for them.

These free weekly clubs help people to stay active, feel alive again, and build amazing friendships through their common love of sport.

Former Nottingham Forest forward Steve Elliott and his wife Mags have setup a weekly club in their small town of Leyland in Lancashire.

If you want to sign-up for a taster session and join many more wonderful people like Steve, Mags, Keith, Andrew who make Sporting Memories come alive each and every week across the UK, visit: sportingmemoriesnetwork.com.
