Hampshire Cricket Club

1864 Hampshire Cricket Supporters Club


1864 is established to provide pastoral support to those living with, impacted by and effected through dementia, mental health and neurological conditions.

1864 covers the whole of Hampshire, using sport as a means of engaging people, providing new opportunities and the chance for new memories to be created.

1864 is committed to the establishment of strong networks so that they can signpost people to the best community and care organisations at times when they most need it. The club works alongside families providing them with whatever level of support they require, for as long as they need it. This is provided at no cost to the family, with our income coming from sponsorship, grants and donations!

Our key reason for being is to ensure that anyone living with dementia, mental health or neurological conditions does not become abandoned in the corner, cast in a box but instead embraced for the person that they remain, capable of living life; and to ensure that family, friends and colleagues are not living in fear or isolated at a time which is incredibly frightening.

The power of sport is a unique way of being able to cut through the stigma and boundaries and to provide the platform for positivity at a time when that can seem so far away.
