Charity risk barometer
Our Charity Risk Barometer 2019 uncovers key challenges facing charities, helps you capitalise on opportunities and reap major rewards.
Sporting Penistone provides access to a Leisure Centre and sporting facilities for the community of Penistone and surrounding areas, after council funding was withdrawn. Sporting Penistone took over running Penistone Leisure Centre from Barnsley Council in 2012. The charity has built up usage of the centre and now have a full programme of classes and events, almost entirely staffed by volunteers.
The donation will go towards phase one of a redevelopment plan to reconfigure the internal layout of the leisure centre. This reconfiguration will allow the centre to host more activities for different people throughout our community.
