News Update – 26th April 2017
1864 received the following email from one of the guests who attended the 2017 season’s first Memory Day last weekend for Day 2 of the Hampshire game against Yorkshire.
It is lovely to receive such feedback, but it remains our privilege and pleasure to be able to host such people, and to provide something which means so much.
With the help of our donors and Hampshire Cricket, we will continue to work as hard as we can to provide more days such as these for people like this, and to provide cricket support throughout the year too.

Hello Jane / Simon
Just to say a big thank you for a great day last Saturday. It gave a much needed respite for all of us and especially my dad at a time when he has not been coping so well. It also got my mum out of the house and she had a really good day too.
It is so much more than just a ticket to see a cricket match.
It was a whole day of fun laughter and interaction with others and being able to encourage my mum to 'get out' as she has been lacking in confidence and suffering back pain and this has had a negative impact on the Alzheimer's and caused extra strain on dad. It provided my dad with much needed respite and to see my mum out and enjoying herself was therapeutic for my dad too.
