Description

We are looking for volunteers with a passion for sport or just a love of people to help us to establish Sporting memories cafes in Chester and Winsford!

We are looking for a small number of volunteers to help us to establish Sporting memories Café’s.  The Café’s will look to engage individuals aged 50+ in social spaces and help them to recall memories of watching or playing sport. By sharing memories of sporting moments and tapping into a passion for sport we will help people to connect with others and with their past, reawakening positive thoughts and feelings that otherwise remain hidden away.

We are providing a training session for any interested volunteers to come along and find out more about the project, ask questions, learn and also to spark their own memories to share with others.

Do you have a passion for sport? If so, we want to hear from you.

When the cafe's are open, anyone over the age of 50+ will be welcome to attend and sessions will be particularly good for those experiencing early signs of memory loss and associated issues.  Cafe's will open across Chester running from Chester Football Club, Hoole Community Centre, Wesley Church Centre, and also from New Images Chatterbox Cafe in Winsford.  Cafes will open in Mid April.

 

Only registered members can apply for opportunities.
