Volunteer

Gym, Swim And Support Your Community 

When you volunteer with us, you will be helping to support a wide range of community enterprises that use the centre as a lifeline. These include a charity for adults with learning disabilities, services for children and young people and a health and well-being project. We don’t have shareholders – it’s just us working together for the community. 

How You Can Help
We rely on local support, grants and the customers that use our facilities. So every time YOU enjoy a swim or buy a snack you’re doing your bit to help keep The Lenton Centre dream alive. 

No matter how much time you have, you can always help; for example volunteering on reception, helping with administration/building maintenance/upkeep of the grounds or supporting children’s services. Anything that interests you or meets your skills and experiences will benefit us both enormously.

If you have some spare time and would like to help out, please give us a call or pop in for a chat and we will welcome you with open arms! Telephone 0115 941 2422 to speak to a member of staff or e-mail us at admin@thelentoncentre.org.uk

Thank you very much for your interest!
