Abbeycroft Leisure have launched a campaign to find local community heroes who can be rewarded with the gift of an active, healthy lifestyle.

The not-for-profit social enterprise, manages fifteen leisure centres across Suffolk and one in Cambridgeshire.

They reopened their centres on the 12 April, inline with the Government’s roadmap and they are appealing for nominations from the public for anyone that has made a difference to the lives of others throughout the pandemic.

It could be everyday acts of kindness, regular support or contact, extraordinary measures, self-sacrificing or pure benevolence.

The heroes could be neighbours, friends, delivery drivers, refuse collectors, nursers, carers or a member of your family.

Warren Smyth, chief executive of Abbeycroft Leisure said: “We’re very pleased to be launching this campaign to find seven community heroes.”

“The last year has been challenging for all of us, but it’s also brought out the best in people.”

“So we’d like to hear about those people who have made a difference to someone else’s life in whatever way that may be, so we can recognise their efforts and reward them with a years health and wellbeing membership.”

There are seven annual memberships available for adults or juniors and in addition, everyone who’s nominated will receive a 5-day free pass, as a thank you for their thoughtfulness and acts of kindness.

Nominate your community hero via the button link below.

Nominations close on 2 May.
