Voting closes tomorrow in the National Lottery’s 25th Birthday Awards – with Great Sankey Neighbourhood Hub being nominated in the ‘Sports Project’ category.
The Great Sankey Neighbourhood Hub – operated on behalf of Warrington Borough Council by the Community Interest Company LiveWire – is a longstanding leisure centre that has been reformed thanks to funding from the National Lottery. The 40-year-old community facility is the first UK dementia-friendly hub boasting a library, fitness suite, sports hall, and Garden Spa
Cllr Tony Higgins, cabinet member for leisure and community at Warrington Borough Council, said: “The Hub is a fantastic symbol of what can be achieved with the support of National Lottery Funding – delivering first-class, inclusive community facilities which make a huge difference to people’s lives.”
Emma Hutchinson, Managing Director at LiveWire, said: “National Lottery funding played a key role in the redevelopment of Great Sankey Neighbourhood Hub, a facility that is bringing huge health and wellbeing benefits to local people already, and will continue to do so for many years to come. We hope the public will vote for Great Sankey Neighbourhood Hub as it would mean so much to us, and those who use Great Sankey Neighbourhood Hub, to receive this award.”
Jonathan Tuchner, from the National Lottery, added: “It’s thanks to National Lottery players, who raise more than £30 million each week for good causes, that brilliant projects like those in the finals of the National Lottery Awards are possible.
“The Great Sankey Neighbourhood Hub is doing an incredible job in its local community and the work they do is hugely impressive. They thoroughly deserve to be in the finals of the 25th Birthday National Lottery Awards and with your support they could be a winner.”
