Football Memories is a programme run by St Mirren FC Charitable Foundation in partnership with Alzheimer’s Scotland.
It’s open to men and women of all ages at various cognitive stages of dementia runing on the last Monday of the month between 2pm –3:30pm at the SMISA Stadium. It’s a fantastic way to make new friends and spend time in a safe environment with people going through the same experience and who also share a passion for sport.
Carers are welcome to join but participants are supported by trained, experienced members of staff.
