The Sporting Memories Foundation is a charity like no other. We support older people across the UK living with dementia, depression and loneliness by engaging them in social activities and helping them to recall memories of watching or playing sport at free, weekly Sporting Memories clubs. 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.

Sporting Memories now runs over 120 weekly clubs across the UK helping people reconnect with their communities and their memories.
