Sporting Memories Calling!

Would you like to help celebrate London’s sporting past at a time when the City – and nation’s – sporting future looks as bright as ever? 

Sporting Memories is currently looking for volunteers to help out at one of three new groups being set up in Greater London: Islington (N1) on Mondays, Ladywell (SE4) on Fridays and Kingston on Mondays.

The Sporting Memories Foundation is the world's first charity dedicated to sports reminiscence and physical activities, supporting older people with dementia, depression and loneliness by engaging them socially and helping to recall memories of watching or playing sport.

For Londoners - The Summer of 2019 sees the Cricket World Cup, three London clubs in the European club football finals, England in the Nations League finals, England in the Women’s World Cup in France, the men’s and women’s Ashes series as well as the start of the Rugby World Cup…

The Capital’s sporting past is just as golden and with memories and events to talk about with our participants.

If you have a passion for sport - why not volunteer and help us deliver reminiscence and activity sessions across London? 

Whether it was England winning the World Cup at Wembley, Virginia Wade triumphing at Wimbledon (we don’t expect many of you to go back as far as Fred Perry!), Steve Ovett and Sebastian Coe running at Crystal Palace or Denis Compton batting at Lord’s, London has a sporting heritage second to none.

Full training is provided for the roles as well as ongoing support.

We value our volunteers and the service that they provide and always want you to feel supported.  

If you feel you can help or would like to know more before committing.
