Support Meopham Leisure Centre

 

As you may know, we had to close our doors following government instructions due to COVID-19 in March. As you can imagine, the current closure is having a big impact on us, placing the future of our centre in jeopardy.

The centre is by far the most used facility in the area. What isn't widely known is that the facility was developed, funded and is owned by Meopham Sports & Leisure Association, a registered charity (No. 293310) founded in 1985, of which I am the founding Trustee and Chairman.

Operations of the centre are outsourced, but its finances are separately accountable and dependant on the revenue earned from members and the thousands of other users of the facilities every year, including the school, after school clubs, and the community at large.

Sadly, the current closure of the centre is having a severe impact on finances and our ability to pay continuing overheads, despite swift action taken to furlough staff and reduce other costs. Losses are accumulating at around £10,000 per month and although some Government Grants are available to us to offset a small portion of these losses, we still need to raise additional funds to ensure the long-term future of our beloved centre.

Only in such extreme circumstances as this would we be reaching out to you in this way and we would be incredibly grateful for any support you can give. For more information on how you can help your leisure centre, please visit our dedicated fundraising website here: https://meophamleisure.stockcrowd.com/

We are also asking all Members, if possible, to allow the reinstatement of the Direct Debit (DD) payments from June 2020. If you are willing and able to support us by reinstating your payment then please email us by Wed. 20th May via our membership collection agent at: membershipenquiries@serco.com

Thank you and stay safe.

Russ Parker
Chairman, MSLA
