Save Bennachie Leisure Centre

Help us save the Bennachie Leisure Centre. Without your help, this great community asset will have to close.

We did it!

On 28th Sep 2017 we successfully raised £20,556 of £20,000 target with 208 supporters in 56 days

New stretch target

If we are successful in keeping the centre open, we would use any overfunding to start providing upgrades to the centre. We've had some great feedback from our community engagement events about how we can improve the centre for everyone in Insch and its surrounding area.

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.
