Free leisure passes up for grabs for ex-service people

Charitable staff at Denbighshire Leisure Services will playing their part in this year’s Poppy Appeal – with a series of free leisure passes up for grabs for ex-service people in a special draw being arranged.

In a new partnership with the Royal British Legion, eleven ex-service people have been chosen to be included in a draw for free month leisure passes.   

The first 10 names chosen will receive monthly passes. 

The lucky eleventh person will receive a leisure pass which will be valid for 11 months. The ex-service people will be able to access free activities for the duration of their pass at any of the council’s leisure locations across the county.

A charity master class will also be taking place at Rhyl Leisure Centre on Thursday, November 1st between 5.30pm and 8pm. Those taking part will be given a chance to contribute towards this year’s Poppy Appeal.

Councillor Bobby Feeley, Cabinet Lead Member for Well-being and Independence, said: “We are delighted to be working closely with the British Legion on this really important initiative.  

“The council regularly supports the Royal British Legion through attendance at Remembrance Day events and this year, we wanted to do something different  in addition to the parades.   

"This is a very practical way for us to say a big ‘thank you’ to the service people  who have put their lives at risk to protect the country in peace-keeping efforts and conflicts in many parts of the world.

“It is also a great opportunity to promote the role that leisure and fitness have in improving people’s health, well-being and independence."
