COMMUNITY & YOUTH INVESTMENT

We are a Community Incorporated Company and we fulfill our community interest statement by running a bespoke teen weightlifting education programme for local youngsters. We also run a free seminar to educate local organisations about the benefits of strength and conditioning for different demographics.

We are currently seeking sponsorship to help us expand these services. Phase 1 of this plan is to develop our facility so we can accommodate more local people. There is a social investment tax relief incentive for organisations to donate to us and we have a Just Giving Page for our Phase 1 development. We run regular social events and fundraisers to self fund these improvements and welcome any questions about our future plans.
