I am keen to raise money for an extremely worthwhile cause. The Harrogate Town AFC Community Foundation are in the process of setting up a Sporting Reminiscence Programme, which will target local people who are;
- Socially isolated
- those looking to improve their mental wellbeing
- those willing to contribute towards encouraging community spirit and reminiscence
The Foundation will be setting up weekly sessions that will encourage local people to share their stories about the past, reminisce about sporting memories and spend time with likeminded people.
In addition to this we will be linking sessions to local sports clubs and exploring their history, encouraging local speakers and historians to share stories.
Not only this there will be an element of physical activity at the end of each session!!! It is expected to be an extremely rewarding programme.
