There is strong, good practice in many golf clubs in England and we want to shine the light on this and, where possible, encourage it to be shared and replicated.”England Golf Disability Manager Jamie Blair added: “We are receiving an increasing number of questions from clubs and golfers about helping people diagnosed with dementia to continue to play.“So, we were very pleased to work with the Alzheimer’s Society and contribute to the development of the guide.“Clubs across the country are already running successful projects to help people with dementia and, now we have this guide, we look forward to their numbers growing rapidly.”The guide was produced with National Lottery funding from Sport England and is designed to help the sport and physical activity sector to support – and empower – people who are living with dementia to lead active lives and remain independent for as long as possible.It also provides tools and guidance to help more people affected by dementia enjoy the benefits of staying active in a caring and understanding environment.With 225,000 people developing dementia each year – that’s one person every three minutes – being dementia friendly will help organisations retain and build on existing custom, both from people living with the condition and from carers, families and friends.Jeremy Hughes, Chief Executive Officer at Alzheimer’s Society, added: “It’s really encouraging to know that England Golf are on the side of people with dementia.“Dementia can devastate lives and it is vital that people with dementia are enabled and empowered to live the life they want in their community.“Visiting a golf club and driving range can be daunting for people with dementia, loved ones and friends – but with support and adjustments from the golfing community, they will remain active.“We need the golfing sector to unite against dementia by committing to actions outlined in the guide and make employees Dementia Friends, so no one has to face dementia alone.”• To find out more about the guide and how to get involved, please visit: alzheimers.org.uk/sport Tags: Alzheimer’s Society, Dementia, inclusivelast_img read more

The Windward Islands Volcanoes are fifth on 29 points, with the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force fourth on 37.PRODUCING BETTER RESULTS”If we want to make a run for the title, we have to start producing better results, starting with the Leewards,” stated Jamaica captain Paul Palmer Jr.”They are down, and we need to keep them down by not only winning, but getting as much bonus points as possible.”With a three-win, two-loss record, the Scorpions will be hoping that the addition of batsmen Jermaine Blackwood, Kirk Edwards and Shacaya Thomas will add much strength to their batting, which has struggled all season.Blackwood missed the team’s first five matches due to West Indies duties, Edwards is making a return after missing their fifth round due to injury, while Thomas has been included for the first time this season.”We have strengthened our batting with the addition of (Jermaine) Blackwood and the return of Kirk (Edwards), and we’re looking for better totals,” said Palmer Jr.”This is in addition to our bowling unit, which we will be looking to for continued good showings.”The team’s bowling will be led by West Indies fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell and sidelined spinner Nikita Miller.As for the Hurricanes, who will be captained for the first time by Jamaica’s Nkrumah Bonner, they are hoping that this change, as well as an extended training camp, will make them stronger.”Jamaica is a good team, but we are playing at home and hope to use this to our advantage,” said Bonner.”We have players with talent, but have been struggling with the basics, and if we can correct that, we should be very competitive.”In addition to Bonner, their leading run-getter, the Leewards are expected to bank on discarded West Indies pacer Gavin Tonge, former captain and wicketkeeper Jahmar Hamilton, as well as promising young batsman Orlando Peters.last_img read more

first_imgKilcar are now outright favourites to win their first county senior title in 23 years after blowing away Naomh Conaill in Ballybofey this evening.Martin McHugh’s rapid squad were simply too much for the current champions and eventually won on a scoreline of 5-10 to 1-11.They now face Glenswilly who just did enough to get over the line in a pretty ordinary semi-final against Malin at O’Donnell Park this afternoon. Kilcar went in at the break 3-4 to 1-6 ahead but an even more impressive second saw Kilcar power away from Martin Doherty’s side to book their place in the final.That game takes place on October 16th at MacCumhaill Park and it will be Kilcar who will be many people’s favourites to lift the Dr Maguire.As well as the McHughs, Michael Hegarty rolled back the years once more for Kilcar and it was very much a fifteen man performance which saw Kilcar come out victors.Glenswilly for their part will have to come up with a gamelan that will have to stop the speed of the Kilcar inside forwards. Kilcar will in turn have to stop Michael Murphy and Neil Gallagher.On tonight’s display at MacCumhaill Park, however, the smart money will have to be on Kilcar.Kilcar made favourites as they face Glenswilly in Senior Championship Final was last modified: October 2nd, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
