These events organised by Sporting Memories Network aim to tackle feelings of loneliness and isolation among the city’s elderly community, as well as give young people of all ages the chance to interact and learn from each other through a range of activities. Seven former cricketers attended an event last year at the County Ground to show their support including Gloucestershire Cricket heroes Syd Lawrence and Mark Alleyne, who shared experiences from throughout their career and got the crowd going with memories of cup finals and close wings.
