Weʼre raising £4,750 to help fund the costs of two refurbished exercise chairs to replace the broken chairs that cannot be repaired.
- Worksop, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The reason why we need the two new exercise chairs, hence the crowdfunding, is because the old ones have been repaired a number of times now but we have been told, by the supplier, that there are no spare parts available for our current models.
Our current two machines are banging & not working smoothly but it’s not something that can be repaired.
Therefore, we have received prices, from the supplier, for the reconditioned chairs and they are £2375 each.
They are part of our complete exercise circuit and they are needed to be able to do exercise every part of the body. Our system is particularly helpful for people with long term mobility and health conditions.
Many people find commercial gyms quite intimidating, however at FSW, we have created the ideal environment to improve your health and wellbeing whatever your age / weight / fitness.
We bring you a revolutionary motorised exercise concept that is safe, effective, functional and easy to use.
However, we are a small but growing community interest company with limited funds that are unable to stretch to meet the costs of the refurbished machines.
The staff, who keep the gym working every week day, volunteer for half the hours they are in gym and without them, it wouldn’t be able to be open. We also make a donation every month to Aurora Wellbeing Centre (in which we are housed within) to help them provide the services they offer.
We would be so grateful if you could donate as much or as little as you want to help us reach our goal of replacing our broken machines in order to continue to promote the effects of health and wellbeing to the people of Bassetlaw.
