Absolutely Leisure Extends Its Charity Offering As It Seeks To Put More Smiles On Faces
If you don’t know what Absolutely Leisure is, it’s an organisation which seeks to provide affordable leisure and entertainment activities such as Go Karting and Laser Combat. The organisation has announced its latest initiative which it calls Absolutely Together that seeks to provide a specific framework for kids and teens who have special needs or disabilities as well as for underprivileged youth and elderly individuals who feel isolated.
Making its facilities available to local charities
Absolutely Leisure has established activity centres across the UK since the charity was first established in 2009 and the organisation has committed itself to not only delivering affordable memorable leisure experiences, but is also providing support to local communities by making its facilities available to local charities. Absolutely Leisure does this by providing either subsidised or free entertainment activities for its partner charities. Absolute Leisure wants to make an even bigger impact by providing to support to those that are most vulnerable as well as individuals that have been forgotten in local communities. Hence the name of the initiative Absolutely Together.
Customers not aware their money goes back into the community
David Brind Group Manage of Absolutely Leisure says that few of the organisations customers and members are aware that by joining one of its top-quality gyms or enjoying a thrilling afternoon of karting actually puts their money back into the community. This money is then used to help vulnerable members of society have an enjoyable experience and gives them the opportunity to socialise, which is far more effective than simply putting money into a charity box.
Programme currently 100% funded by profits
Mr Brind adds that not only do customers receive excellent value for money combined with fabulous service and a wonderful experience, but in the process, they are also helping others. The Absolutely Together programme is completely funded by the profits made by Absolutely Leisure and this means all donations are 100% guaranteed to be used towards the provision of services. Mr Brind says his organisation seeks not just to enable local charities to make use of its facilities but also wants to get out there themselves and run entertaining programmes specifically targeted at people in need.
Children get to participate in activities they would otherwise not have the opportunity to
The pilot program is being run at the organisation’s Maidenhead kart track where children with disabilities are able to participate in Go-Karting sessions in a dual seat kart. Mr Brind says these children have the opportunity to take part in something they otherwise would not have been able to before and have the kind of experience other able-bodied kids get to enjoy.
Hopefully the programme will expand
At present the profits made by Absolutely Leisure are financing the programme, but the organisation is hoping to secure donations and grants in order to support the work that it does and enable it to expand its offerings. The mission of Absolutely Together is to ‘put a smile on faces’ and to help those that are most vulnerable in society by alleviating loneliness, social isolation and prejudice.
