Hope you will be joining us for these meet ups
Whitehaven Rugby League Trust are sending you invitations to weekly meet ups for sports fans, especially of the Haven and Rugby League in general to share their memories of years gone by. We are dedicated to bring older adults together to share their passion – the love of sport!
TIH recognises that older adults may struggle from isolation, low confidence, dementia or ill-health. With a keen focus to help combat this we use the power of sport to create an atmosphere that can bring happy and good memories through reminiscence.
Using memorabilia, photos, positive recollections from the Clubs archives or local community clubs we use these tools to start conversations, share memories, provide enjoyment and make new friendships.
We propose to get together for an informal chat every week ,where the sessions are led by you and others who will share talking points to discuss.
These for now will be free session to attend, with no commitment just attend when you can
It is planned that we get together every Thursday Afternoon at 1-30 commencing Thursday 4th March
Currently due to the pandemic sessions are held virtually via the online portal zoom, but once restrictions allow they will become weekly fixtures at set venue
Tih is always on the lookout for volunteers that could either help facilitate or support the sessions. We’d love to hear from you if you may be interested.
You can register your interest or if you have any queries/ you’d like to supply imagery to be added to the weekly presentation please email Trust in Haven
