Shinty – The Memories Project
Three national sporting bodies and two national sports museums have come together to set up a network of over 100 volunteers to deliver a community based and nationwide sports reminiscence project for vulnerable people living with memory loss or experiencing loneliness and isolation.
The Sports Heritage Scotland project will take place over 2017-18 and is a collaborative reminiscence project to create and establish a minimum of 30 reminiscence groups for shinty, golf, rugby and cricket.
These groups will be supported by the already established Football Memories Scotland network.
At the same time a digital programme will create an archive for golf, shinty, rugby and cricket to supply resources to the reminiscence project while preserving and safeguarding sports heritage for future generations.
If you have any images which you think could contribute to the memories project and could be included in the sports archive, relating to 1940-90 in the first instance, please contact Dr Hugh Dan MacLennan on firstname.lastname@example.org or Lindsay Hamilton on lindsay.hamilton@ sportsheritagescotland.co.uk.
