Silver Foxes Memories
Since it's creation, Uxbridge Amblers has achieved a national reputation for not only being one of the most successful Walking Football Clubs in the country, but also for it's charity work carried out within the community.
This work has introduced the club to many disability groups, of which dementia has become a growing area of concern.
Mick Geraghty, Mick Harvey, and John Handell took advice and received training from Hillingdon Council and the Alzheimer's Society.
This has enabled the club to deliver reminiscence sessions for various dementia groups.
After two very successful meetings with the Hillingdon Alzheimer's Group, Uxbridge Amblers launched 'Silver Foxes Memories'.
The purpose of the group is to deliver and facilitate memory group sessions at various centres throughout the borough.
The sessions are delivered by the club on a voluntary basis, please do contact us should you wish to become a volunteer.
