The Bennachie Leisure Centre (BLC) is in Insch, Aberdeenshire and is a 20 year old, community run facility. It offers fitness classes for the whole family, a gym, an event space and has also been host to a cafe.
Unfortunately due to falling revenues and rising costs and debt which has accumulated over a period of time, we are in financial difficulty.
A new board of directors, all volunteers, came together in April this year (2017) - our aim is to secure the future of BLC ensuring it is here for the long term. We have been working on a sustainable plan that will ensure the long term viability of the centre .
Once the the debt has been cleared we can access funding which has already been allocated to the centre for improvements.
We are hosting a range of fundraising events and are looking to raise £20,000. This amount will allow us to focus on the future - we'd like the centre to become a real community and sports hub, a place where Insch families can meet, socialise and be a part of their own fitness journeys.
