The Big Game is set to be a big success again in 2019, as our community team here at the Magna Vitae Trust for Leisure and Culture provides an afternoon of fun, games and competition.
The sports day event, at Meridian Leisure Centre, on Monday May 20 is being organised by staff behind the Still Me project.
Funded by Louth & District Hospice, the project provides a whole host of activities within the East Lindsey community for people with life-limiting illnesses – all of them being dementia friendly. It is run on the hospice’s behalf by Magna Vitae and its community arm, which offers the outreach services as part of our ethos of supporting local people to live a greater life for longer.
This is the third annual Big Game and last year saw more than 70 people taking part in new aged kurling, welly wanging, egg & spoon and foam javelin.
With relatives, friends, other organisations and support workers also welcome, the afternoon ends with a ceremony when trophies, medals, certificates and prizes are presented – with special awards for best dressed, top team mate and selective hearing.
There is also an opportunity to get to know the Still Me team and meet representatives from Carers First, Alzheimer’s Society, Trinity Centre and Age UK.
