HGCT launches reminiscence Sessions

Published: 29th January 2021

Huddersfield Giants Community Trust is delighted to set up a new online Reminisce Session for older fans of Huddersfield Giants, Rugby League and Sport.

HGCT recognises that older adults may struggle from isolation, low confidence, dementia or ill-health. With a keen focus to help combat this we are using the power of sport to create an atmosphere that can bring happy and good thoughts through reminiscence.

We are proud to offer our first ever reminiscence session on Thursday 4th February at 11am in line with Time to Talk Day – A day designed to promote starting conversations.

Held on the online platform Zoom, these sessions are weekly and free to attend. An informal approach we feel this will suit users and allow for a light hearted atmosphere.

Our aim is to reach as many people as possible who have the same passion and would enjoy to reminisce, listen or share fond memories of Rugby League, either from Huddersfield Giants or local community clubs using memorabilia, photographs or just general chat.

An open invitation to anyone interested, we are also encouraging local care homes, carers to get involved where possible to offer the opportunity for residents.

This new project is supported by Looking Back who have already set up successful weekly sessions at other Rugby League clubs in Yorkshire.

If you or anyone you know would like to join our first session please email chrisb@hgct.co.uk for more details and instructions how to join.

Alternatively you can automatically join our session by clicking below on Thursday at 11am

HGCT is also looking for volunteers that could either help facilitate or support the sessions. We’d love to hear from you if you may be interested.

We can’t wait to get started and see you as many of you at the first session on Thursday 4th February.
