Football Against Dementia

Football Against Dementia – We received a donation of a football kit from Dr. Sheldon of East Norfolk Medical Practice. I saw Chris Suttons BBC video about his late Father, Mike Suttons journey with dementia and it struck a chord as my Mum has been living with dementia for 9 years and I decided to try to raise funds to buy funds for a memorial bench for former ‘Bloater’ Mr. Sutton. Working with our great friends at Great Yarmouth Town Football Club and the NHS we organised a football game at GYTFC to recognise our NHS heroes and for the memory of Mr. Sutton. The game was in a break in the middle of the pandemic. And over 1000 people came along with a host of former footballing legends. The day was extremely well received and we decided to make Football Against Dementia one of our ongoing projects with the goal of helping anyone, not just footballers, affected by dementia.
