United by Memories sports café

On the seond Wednesday of every month, Cambridge United Community Trust organises a 'United by Memories' sports café for people living with dementia and their care partners. The sessions include activities, looking at sports images and memorabilia to aid recall and memory and chatting over tea/coffee. And of course, in Cambridge United tradition, we finish with a "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts"!

CUCT is delighted to be partnering with Dementia Compass and 100 Years of Coconuts (the historic arm of Cambridge United) to run the sports café.

We welcome individuals living with the early to moderate stages of Alzheimer's disease, other dementia or a mild cognitive impairment, along with a care partner (spouse, loved one, adult child, friend).

The event is free to attend and tea/coffee and biscuits are provided.

At a recent sports café on Wednesday 8th August 2018, we had an interview with ex-players from Cambridge United Football Club - Rodney Slack and Luke Chadwick. They spoke about their experiences playing for the U's, and how football has changed over the years.

Cambridgeshire Live have a great article about 'United by Memories' on their website.

The sports cafés take place on the third Wednesday of each month from 2pm-3.30pm at The Abbey Stadium. The next few:

  • 17th October
  • 21st November
  • 6th December (Seniors' Christmas Lunch)
  • 19th December

We'd love to see you there!
