We were devastated to postpone all of our Sporting Memories sessions a few weeks back because of the ongoing concerns with the Coronavirus pandemic.
But the health and safety of all our attendees is of the upmost concern to us all, and we're looking forward to when we can all be together at our groups again in the future.
In the meantime Helen John, our health and wellbeing co-ordinator who leads all the sessions, has been busy reaching out to all our members to keep them engaged during these unprecedented times.
Despite not being able to be with each other right now due to members being in the high risk category of contracting covid-19, Helen has adapted a number of resources so attendees can access them online. As well as sending out weekly newsletters and emails filled with trivia, puzzles, we've also set up Whatsapp and Facebook groups to keep our members engaged.
Our Sporting Memories sessions are designed to help re-live positive memories and provide joy and companionship. Our groups at Dunvant RFC, Neath RFC, Swansea RFC, The Village Hotel Swansea, and the newly launched club at Briton Ferry RFC have all been taking part in video calls to keep the conversation flowing and have that interaction with others.
We're always looking for new ideas and sporting memories to share, so if you'd like to get involved, contact Helen today at [email protected]
