This weekend, a total of 28 people gave just under 100 hours of their time to paint the new gym room!
We had a brilliant response to our request for volunteers this weekend! Volunteers are an essential part of completing the refurbishment project, as some of our funding relies on us matching the money with volunteer hours. So this weekend was brilliant, but we’ll need to host plenty more of them in the coming months to keep working on the areas of the centre as they are finished!
Lots of our regular volunteers came in for EXTRA time on top of what they already do at the centre! There would be no Penistone Leisure Centre without these volunteers, so we really are grateful to them! Plenty of people who use the centre on a regular basis volunteered too. That’s certainly one way to get better facilities- work for them!
Seven volunteers also came along from ‘Good-Gym Barnsley‘! If you’re not sure what Good Gym is, it’s a fab group of people who use doing good and keeping fit! Essentially, they run to the venue of a volunteer task, do some work and then run home! This weekend, lots of our Good-Gym Volunteers did Penistone Parkrun, then ran down to Penistone Leisure Centre to help!

Thanks so much for coming down! It was lovely to meet you all.
