SAVE OUR SPORTS CAMPAIGN
In light of the second national lockdown which will bring a full closure of grassroots sport, fitness and leisure, without emergency government support, like that given to the arts sector, community sport and physical activity faces a bleak future that will be difficult to recover from, impacting the nation’s physical and mental health and damaging Britain’s ability to Build Back Better.
That’s why we are supporting the Sports Recovery Fund petition which calls on the government to instigate emergency support to ensure sports clubs, fitness and leisure facilities – the lifeblood of communities across the nation – can remain open and survive the difficult months.
Join us and support the petition to save grassroots sport, fitness and leisure by signing the public petition https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/553619 and forward onto your members, family and friends.
