Donate or Support Us

The Leisure Centre is run by the community for the community under the guidance of 4SLC Trust. It is one of the few nationally that does so.

The majority of our income is generated from our trading activity, however we do need additional funds to cover all our costs and allow re investment back in the building, its facilities and equipment.

This is a difficult task but so far, have received fantastic financial support from the Lottery Power to Change ‘Initial Grants Programme’, Viridor Credits, South Yorkshire Key Fund and Stocksbridge Town Council – all of whom have provided much needed capital to help us getting the pools up and running and introduce green energy measures to reduce our energy costs.

We are also indebted to our local Stocksbridge Town Council and Joseph Sheldon Trust in Stocksbridge, who together with charitable donations from the local and business community, help with our running costs.

In 2017, we were particularly proud to have been selected by the Fox Valley retail development as their Charity for the Year.

Despite all this, we still need to fundraise. We have a Fundraising Group that do a brilliant job in organising fundraising events throughout the year and who are always looking for new members. If you cannot donate your time, you can donate or support us in the following ways;
