THE BORO Foundation has been sending out memorabilia boxes to care homes to help residents with dementia reminisce.
The boxes containing old programmes, tickets and photos, among other items from past Middlesbrough FC games, have been the centre of activities run at the homes.
Mandale House Care Home, on Acklam Road, in Thornaby, was one of those benefitting from the scheme.
The home works closely with the Middlesbrough FC Foundation’s National Citizenship Service (NCS), offering teenage volunteers opportunities to work with elderly residents.
Kelly Daley, the Foundation’s NCS lead, said: “The club has delivered a number of dementia tours at the Riverside Stadium and the feedback was overwhelming.
