NHS workers are being invited to get active for free, as part of a campaign to celebrate 'Lockdown Legends' once gyms reopen.

The goodwill gesture is being made by leisure operator, Everyone Active, in recognition of the hard work and sacrifices NHS staff have made throughout the pandemic.

All NHS staff are being invited to claim a free month’s membership at Cheam Leisure Centre, David Weir Leisure Centre, The Phoenix Centre and Westcroft Leisure Centre following the lockdown.

Everyone Active has also launched a competition inviting people to nominate someone that has gone above and beyond during the pandemic. 

Two winners (one adult and one child under the age of 11) will be chosen from across the Everyone Active estate with the adult winner receiving a year’s free membership and the child a year’s worth of free-swimming lessons.

David Bibby, managing director at Everyone Active, said: “This pandemic has been incredibly tough on us all and our NHS has proven more valuable than ever.

"The sheer dedication NHS colleagues have shown is incredibly admirable and we wanted to show our appreciation for them in any way we can.

“There’s also lots of other people supporting their local community that may have gone unnoticed.

"We’re really looking forward to hearing about the inspiring people from our Lockdown Legends campaign, sharing their stories and showing our appreciation for them too.

"Please make sure you nominate your Lockdown Legend and highlight all the amazing people that are helping us get through this pandemic.”
