A group aimed at older men who love sport is looking for volunteers to help run its sessions, focusing on great memories of bygone sporting events.

The group meets at the John Gray Centre in Haddington and has a core group of twelve and the organisers often invite sportsmen and women to visit the group and share their experiences. They also organise sports-themed quizzes and activities from time to time.

The sessions are fun, friendly and welcoming and the timing of the meetings replicates the structure of a football match, with a first and second and a half time break when the men enjoy hot drinks and a pie. The group is also aiming to record the memories of individual members and hopes to produce a memory book.

If you can volunteer a few hours a week, get in touch with the centre on tel:  01620 820 695 or send an e-mail.
