  • A page dedicated to keeping the Bennachie Leisure Centre open for the community of Insch

The centre opened in 1999 after being funded by the local community and the Big Lottery Fund. It's run by a Board of volunteers as a SCIO.

The centre offers fitness classes to all ages, and has a well equipped gym and spinning studio. Our Terminator Turmoil is a huge hit with the kids.

Unfortunately the Centre struggles to survive on the £14k per year awarded by Aberdeenshire Council.

Please help keep the centre open by donating today.  Here's what your donation could help us with:

  • 2p pays for Class licence (Les Mills) per minute

  •  £1 pays for Centre music licence for one hour 

  • £15 pays for water usage per day

  • £20 pays for administration & accounting costs per day 

  • £120 pays for building maintenance per week 

  • £600 pays for electricity per month

     Although the centre started the financial year with around £12000 of debt, and discovered another £8000 throughout the year, we expect to have reduced this to just £3000 by the end of the financial year. We need to be solvent in order to continue operating and are therefore looking to reduce this deficit. 

Please donate today!
