The PNE Sporting Memories programme is an initiative run by Preston North End Community and Education Trust alongside the Sporting Memories Foundation, which is open to people over 50 who are living with dementia, depression or suffer from loneliness.
The programme aims to help people reminisce about previous memories, experiences or moments in their lives through the power of sport. Sports memorabilia, past sporting events, physical activities, quizzes and guest speakers are used to create discussions around sporting events and memories.
Sessions are held every Tuesday morning, from 11am until 12:30pm at Preston North End's Deepdale stadium. Those wishing to take part can meet at the community offices at 10.45am. All sessions are free to attend and refreshments are provided, with family members, friends, carers or support workers of those attending also very much welcome.
