Sport Relief week is coming up, and Burnley Leisure are putting on a range of events so that you can take part, raise some funds which will go to good causes, and enjoy yourself keeping fit.
The week runs from Sunday 18th March- Sunday 25th March.
Local events taking place during the week are as follows, with all proceeds going to Sport Relief:
- Quid a swim- from Sunday 18th- Friday 23rd March 2018, 3.30-5.30pm, £1 at St Peter’s and Padiham Leisure Centre
- Swimming Inflatable- Sunday 18th March 2018, 1.30pm-3.30pm, £2, at Padiham Leisure Centre
- Gym Challenge- Sunday 18th March 2018, between 10.30am-2.30pm at Padiham Leisure Centre.
There are two ways you can take part in the challenge.
The first option costs £1 a go. This would get you 5 minutes on either the treadmill, bike or rower. Whoever gets the furthest distance on each of the 3 pieces of equipment in the 5 minutes wins a meal for 2 at Prairie Sports Village along with an allocation of 100 free golf balls for the Prairie Driving range.
Option two costs £3 per go. Again, this gives you 5 minutes on each of the treadmill, bike or rower, but this time the prize will be given for the furthest combined distance. The winner will get a free three month Burnley Leisure gym membership.
Burnley Leisure will also be completing a variety of events within Burnley’s Sainsbury’s supermarket between Wednesday 21st and Friday 23rd March and pop down to see us and join in with the events and find out about how you can keep active with Burnley Leisure.
As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives. The money raised by the public is spent by Comic Relief to support some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people in the UK and around the world. Support is given to over 2,000 projects in the UK and elsewhere. Malaria, maternal health and mental health are just three areas, out of many, where money raised through Sport Relief 2018 will make a huge difference.
