The Sporting Memories Foundation in England and Wales Donate Fundraise There are 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK. 1 in 4 of us will experience mental illness during our lifetime. 1,000,000 people over the age of 75 say TV is their only form of regular company. In 2015 the Chief Medical Officer for England and Wales stated that loneliness has the same impact on health and longevity as the equivalence of smoking 15 cigarettes per day. Our ambition is to make Sporting Memories available to every older person who wishes to attend a club or who would benefit from one to one sessions, be it in their own homes or in care homes and hospitals. You can help us achieve this. Please donate today and help us tackle dementia, depression and loneliness.
