FREE leisure centre access for Emergency Services and frontline NHS staff this Christmas


This Christmas, Everyone Active will open the doors to its leisure centres for free, to all members of the emergency services and frontline NHS colleagues.

This goodwill gesture is in recognition of the hard work the emergency services carry out, particularly over the Christmas period, when they are working long and unsociable hours away from loved ones.

From the 24th to 31st of December, those who hold a valid Emergency Services ID card will be granted free-of-charge access to the gyms and swimming pools across all Everyone Active centres in the country, including 25 centres in and around London.

“Christmas is a special time of year, but many emergency service workers put in extra shifts and incredibly long hours to keep us safe and well. With centres across London open early to late, we wanted to do something to show our appreciation. Whether they want to stop by for a hot shower, a swim in the pool or to let off some steam in the gym, we will welcome them through our doors,” says Duncan Jefford, South East Regional Director for Everyone Active.

Participating London centres include:

  • Acton Centre
  • Brent Valley Golf Course & Fitness Centre
