Save your local sports centre

Due to the current COVID-19  pandemic we've been forced to shut our doors to our community to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. Because of this, we now need your help more than ever to cover the costs of our charity owned and run centre. 

Thankfully, at this time our amazing staff's wages are mostly covered by the government's latest efforts to tackle job losses, however, the bills will keep coming and operational costs are still mounting. 
-Our Montly Grant from the local authority is £12,500 (£150,000 per year)
-Our Monthly Membership income is approximately £35,000
-Our Monthly Outgoings are £140,000 (50% of which is staff wages)
-With the income gap being made up from regular bookings and casual users.

We're incredibly grateful to our members who are sticking with us during these troubling times and to everyone who has already donated. Unfortunately, more is still needed which is why we're appealing to you now. 

Please help save your local sports centre.

Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to us.
