In Praise Of Jean, and Bob!

“I like it because you’re out in the open, you make more friends…you feel so much better…so lifted afterwards…”

Featuring Jean Woods and Bob Whitfield. Two people whose commitment to sport (and life) is inspiring. Click on pictures to read their stories.

Videos…

A selection of video clips focusing on homelessness, and mental health problems exacerbated by isolation, and physical incapacity. Sport can play a vital role in improving our bodily and mental well-being. These issues increasingly affect the elderly, and The National Vintage Games is supporting charities that seek to address them.
