Warriors launch Tackling Dementia Sports Café

Warriors have this month launched a Tackling Dementia Sports Café aimed at people affected by dementia and their families, friends and carers.

The Sports Café provides people with the opportunity to get together, share experiences and engage in a relaxing sporting activity before unwinding in a safe and friendly environment and enjoying light refreshments while they create memories.

The Sports Café takes place at Sixways every Wednesday from 11am to midday. To find out more about this service or to become a volunteer, please contact Warriors Disability Lead Simon Northcott by emailing simon.northcott@warriors.co.uk or calling 07809 676008.

Simon said: “The first week was all about laying down some ideas for the coming weeks and everyone enjoyed having a sit down and a chat.

“In the second week we were joined by Alan and Trudy who were both Season Ticket holders prior to Alan’s diagnosis.

“They both said they were very keen to come and watch a match in our Safe Place, which has been accessible on matchdays this season.

“We have put a big focus on our dementia work this season and we are pleased our Sports Café and Safe Place have proved so popular.”
