SAINTS FOUNDATION PARTNERS UP WITH THE GYM TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT HEALTH AND WELL-BEING

IMG_0051

Saints Foundation’s latest partners, The Gym, want to help raise awareness surrounding health and well-being in the community.

Along with donating vital funds to Saints Foundation, The Gym will also support Saints Foundation by hosting programmes such as Saints Foundation Futsal Scholarship Programme, Senior Saints and Saints Football Fans in Training, providing access to their facilities in a bid to improve local community participation in their Southampton Central and Southampton East gyms.

By working together, Saints Foundation and The Gym hope that through exercise they can target both young people and adults at risk, and have a positive impact on their lives.

Debra Pallett, General Manager of Southampton Central, said: “Working with Saints Foundation is great for us; we see this partnership as a benchmark for other gyms to follow, so they can make a difference in their communities too.”

Saints Foundation’s Futsal Scholars are just one of the Foundations initiatives that have enjoyed the use of The Gym’s facilities. Callum Kitcher, a Saints Foundation student, said: “It’s really beneficial for our work, we can take the experiences we get from Saints Foundation and The Gym, and then use it to help us improve our grades.”

If you would like to help The Gym raise money for Saints Foundation’s worthwhile causes, a 12 hour Spin-A-Thon will be taking place at the Southampton Central and Southampton East gyms from 10am to 10pm on Wednesday 23rd November. To get involved in this event, you can participate at either of the Southampton Central or Southampton East gyms, donate to management in person, or visit www.justgiving.com/saintsfc.
