As a charitable trust, we have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our customers who have chosen to continue paying their membership fees despite doors being closed in line with the Government’s protocols in relation to the spread and containment of the Coronavirus (Covid-19).
Since the closure, we froze all direct debits for our membership scheme, Leisure Active, but some locals voluntarily reinstated the payments in order to support the Fife Health and Wellbeing Fund, the trust’s own fund designed to support the delivery of our health and wellbeing programme to local people living with long-term health conditions such as cancer, diabetes, dementia and COPD.
So far, thanks to Leisure Active members, we are raising over £450 per month to add to the Fife Health and Wellbeing Fund which is fantastic news!
If you would like to contribute to the fund to help people across Fife who are living with long-term health conditions, please visit https://www.fifeleisure.org.uk/supportus/
Rebecca Suiter, sales and membership manager for Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, said: “The support we have received has been amazing and we are very thankful to members who have chosen to help a local organisation in these difficult times. Our Fife Health and Wellbeing Fund is vital to the trust’s ability to continue to deliver our health programme and make a difference to people living with long-term health conditions.
“We’d also like to recognise all those who have been enjoying our live virtual fitness sessions, it’s a great way for our teams to stay in touch with customers and it has really helped our staff to know that the trust is valued by so many people.”
