Story

As many of you know, Penistone Leisure Centre was closed due to council cut-backs in summer 2011. Sporting Penistone is the community group which was founded to re-open it for the benefit of the community. Sporting Penistone opened its doors to the public on Saturday 22nd September 2012 for classes in the main hall, and the gym re-opened on Monday 9th September 2013.

Now in 2017, still run almost entirely by volunteers, the centre is moving from strength to strength, but still has various challenges to overcome! This is where we need YOUR HELP!

We have discovered extensive dry rot in the floor of the gym, which will mean major work to remove, treat and replace the flooring, before we can get that space back into use!

We have recieved quotes of around £10,000 to complete the required works. The leisure centre draws its income from classes, grants and charitible donations, so any help towards this amount would be hugely beneficial in helping us to continue to provide a gym for the local community.

Any donation towards these costs would help us hugely, just click on the button to the right and donate any amount you can! It all adds up!

If you are interested in helping us to raise funds with an event/raffle/competition etc, please contact us at info@penistoneleisurecentre.org.uk

    The room was prepped for painting by a group of volunteers on 3/4th Jan so big 'Thank you!' to Rachel Gibbons, Clive & Harvey Leacock, Zach Biden, Andy Cudworth, Frances Greenwood & Michael Cooper. The brill Bridge End Builders came in on 8/9th Jan to give the room a lick of paint. Josh & his team have given two full days of their time to come in & help us, so please do 'like' their page on facebook "Bridge End Builders". We think you'll agree that they've done a brilliant job!

    Bridge End Builders are going to come and paint it for us at no charge and Gary Wainwright, one of our users, is going to lay new flooring for us for free. Then we have a company lined up to put all the gym equipment back into our lovely new room. Everyone has been brilliant! We hope to have the gym up and running in the new room by 15th January - although that could slip by a few days if some things take longer than expected.

    Huge thanks to everyone - your donations, plus some that were given offline, have meant we have reached our target and the work has now started. The old flooring has been removed and replaced with concrete so that the dry rot cannot come back. We are waiting for the concrete to dry over Christmas, then we've advertised for volunteers to help to clean and prepare the room.
