Sporting Memories club launches at Emerald Headingley Stadium this October for older fans

Leeds Rhinos Foundation is delighted to announce the launch of face to face sessions for our new Sporting Memories club at Emerald Headingley Stadium in October.

The meetings will take place in the South Stand Foundation Community Hub every Tuesday from 1:30pm to 3pm, connecting people in our community together through the power of sport.

The Sporting Memories programme aims to help people with dementia, depression and loneliness by engaging them in social activities and helping them recall some of their favourite memories of watching or playing sport.

By sharing memories of sporting moments and tapping into a passion for sport, Sporting Memories helps people to connect with others and with their past, reawakening positive thoughts and feelings that otherwise remain hidden away.

Using images of sport and memorabilia, people are assisted to stay connected with their friends and communities, cognitively stimulated and physically active. A wealth of evidence on ageing well has highlighted the impact on remaining connected to friends, family and communities, remaining cognitively stimulated and physically active can have on our health and wellbeing.

Leeds Rhinos Foundation is excited to get this session up and running, developing a quality weekly session to benefit people within Leeds by offering a great chance for people to meet fellow fans, make new friendships and enjoy fun activities in a relaxed environment.
