Max Sanders and Jordan Wright recently visited Monson care home to participate in an activity session with residents.
As part of Lincoln City Foundation’s Extra Time Hub programme, Monson care home receives sessions which use seated chairs and low impact multi-sport activities to improve residents’ physical attributes and bring additional joy to their life.
This programme has recently been awarded with funding from Active Lincolnshire on behalf of Sport England as it provides physical activities and social support for older adults.
Joanne Varey, activities and wellbeing lead at the care home, said: “All the residents enjoyed meeting the players and spending some quality time with them. Thank you to Max and Jordan for taking the time to visit our care home, and the Foundation for organising it and donating the signed football shirt.
“We additionally enjoy our regular visits from the Foundation which provide our residents with great entertainment.”
Alice Carter, head of healthier communities at the Foundation, added: “We really value being able to support residents at Monson care home, which is located so close to the LNER Stadium.
“Alongside providing activities to help enhance residents’ health and wellbeing, it is fantastic to be able to connect them more to the football club - many have great memories of attending matches and supporting the Imps and enjoy keeping a track of the team’s progress still.”
Lincoln City Foundation utilises the brand and reputation of the Imps to help individuals and communities to improve their physical, social, and mental wellbeing - click here to visit their website and find out more information.
