we're raising £30,000 to support repairs to Sandwich Sport & Leisure Centre!

July 12 2020

The Sports Hall floor has deteriorated to a point where it is no longer safe to use and we are keen to reinstate the facilities for both our students and the community.

On 28 May 2020 Sandwich Technology School became the new owners of the site. The school is working hard with Freedom Leisure to engage their services, so that in partnership with them we can ensure:

<> The Sandwich Sports and Leisure Centre re opens to the public as soon as possible

<> The building continues to provide a service for the local community.

<> We bring the building back up to a condition that is fit for purpose for both school pupils and the public.

To re-open there are going to be some substantial costs involved - currently the building has about £250,000 worth of issues that need addressing and the Sports Hall itself will remain out of bounds until the floor is fixed. The school is willing to invest a significant amount of money to provide the students with good resources for their PE curriculum, and Freedom Leisure is similarly determined to make the Sandwich Sports and Leisure Centre a going concern. However, the school has limited resources, and Freedom Leisure is a not-for profit company that, like many other businesses has been hit hard by the Covid-19 epidemic.

Therefore, we are asking for your help. If every member of our School community was able to spare £10, that would bring in over £15,000 towards the cause. If residents of Sandwich and other parts of the local community helped too, who knows how much we could raise? We want to ensure that this valuable community asset is preserved for the good of everyone.

Thank you - every £ donated helps us towards re-opening this valuable community asset
