DSY Launches Sporting Reminiscence Boxes

DSY is launching a number of Sporting Reminiscence Boxes, to help stimulate conversation and memories in older people.

The boxes contain sporting memorabilia, such as shirts, programmes, dvds and books, and are designed to stimulate discussion and conversation in older people, by bringing back memories of the 1940s, 50s, 60s and 70s.

Funding for the boxes has come from Kirklees Council (for boxes in Kirklees), and Awards for All.
Boxes will be made available on loan free of charge. A user guide will also be made available with each box.
DSY is looking for “host organisations” across the region with whom we can permanently base the boxes, and from where they can be loaned to other local groups. For further details contact Fiona Hall fhall@disabilitysportyorkshire.org
