By presenting a medium or large boxed chocolate Easter Egg at the centre before 6pm on the 31 March the membership team will waive the joining fee on any swim or fitness membership, offering a saving of up to £45.

Geordie Logan, Freedom Leisure Sales Manager, says:

“Easter and Spring is a time for both new beginnings and giving so we have decided to combine the two by offering anyone wishing to embark on a new fitness regime to do so while giving to charity at the same time!

“We know that Spring is a time that many locals look to join a gym and start a fresh new fitness regime as the weather starts to improve and people turn their thoughts to summer and holidays, so we thought that this would be a perfect way to support Crawley residents with an incentive. We are really hoping to get at least 100 eggs to distribute to our chosen local charities.”

All eggs collected in the centre will be distributed on Easter Sunday to St Catherine’s Hospice, paediatric units at Crawley and East Surrey hospitals and Crawley’s food bank.

Oriel High School students chose The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre which is attached to Crawley Hospital as their chosen charity for their sponsored walk this year.

The students managed to raise an astounding £13,250.

Alyson Smith, Fundraising manager for Olive Tree Cancer Support was presented with a cheque with more money still coming in.

Alyson said:

“As a small charity this is such amazing news to us. The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre is a small, independent charity based in Crawley which has provided free support, advice, friendship and therapies to thousands of people in the local area and is a hugely valuable and much appreciated resource.

The Olive Tree, which began as a small cancer support group over 21 years ago in Crawley, provides a haven: somewhere to go and be with people who understand and can help. Our team of 85 volunteers offers free information, advice and therapeutic care to support all those affected by cancer from the point of diagnosis, through treatment and beyond. The Olive Tree supports the friends, families and carers as well as the individual experiencing cancer.”

The charity offer complementary and emotional support therapies. They say the complementary therapies can help to reduce stress, alleviate the side effects of cancer treatments and enhance feelings of well-being. They also offer acupuncture, aromatherapy, massage, reflexology, craniosacral therapy and Reiki.

Their emotional support is offered through counselling, art counselling, coaching, hypnotherapy and mindfulness workshops and they also run several support groups, which provide an informal environment for people to come together and support.

The charity also point out that their range of services is continually evolving and currently includes yoga, singing workshops, and a wig scheme.
