2016 is the 50th anniversary of England winning the World Cup. Former players from 1966 will be launching a national memory project at 11am on 5th January at the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington.
The players will be posing with the Jules Rimet Trophy and the ’66 final ball.
The #memoriesof66 project is in partnership with the Sporting Memories Network, the Heritage Lottery, the FA and the National Football Museum. Its aim is to use the power of football to reduce loneliness and isolation in the elderly. The nation is being asked to submit their 1966 memories and memorabilia to help form a special 1966 exhibition commemorating the World Cup at the National Football Museum in Manchester and at Wembley this Summer.
Cause UK has been tasked with promoting this national initiative, as well as regional cricket Sporting Memories Network projects. For more information go to http://www.sportingmemories.org/ or contact Clair Chadwick at firstname.lastname@example.org, 07531948014
