Charitable trust boosts offer to Fife students to get active

The area’s leading provider of sports and leisure services is expanding its offer to further education students across Fife to make it easier and more affordable for them to get the health and wellbeing benefits of getting active.

The move by Fife Sports and Leisure Trust will see the charitable organisation working with Fife College to boost access to its sports and leisure facilities close to college campuses. The offer of Leisure Active, the trust’s low-cost membership scheme – will give full-time students discounted, unlimited access, all year round, to all leisure centres with a focus toward campuses near to Michael Woods Sports & Leisure Centre, Duloch Leisure Centre and East Sands Leisure Centre.

Rebecca Suiter, sales and membership manager for Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, said: “This specially-designed student offer expands memberships which were previously in place – in particular, it allows students to access facilities out with term times and still enjoy discounted rates.

“Thanks to the partnership with Fife College’s guidance, health and wellbeing team, and the Fife College Students’ Association, we have designed a membership scheme which we think will be very attractive to students and encourage greater participation in physical activity delivering real health and wellbeing benefits for those who take up the offer.”

Kirsten Mullen, sports and events coordinator, Fife College Students’ Association, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for our students to take advantage of during term time. The FCSA are committed to improving the health and well-being of our members. This initiative is one of many that aims to deliver this.”
