Downing Renewables & Infrastructure Trust (DORE) is delighted to be supporting Piddlehinton Gym, a historic rural community hub for indoor sports and recreational activities. DORE is pleased to have donated £30,000 towards the £100,000 needed for the challenging project of repairing the gym’s original roof.
The gym is located in the Piddlehinton Enterprise Park, close to DORE’s Bourne Park Solar Farm, and provides affordable facilities to enhance the wellbeing of local residents and employees. Overseen by the Piddlehinton Gym Charity since the building was leased in 2007, the gym is used by more than 200 people every week for badminton, 5-a-side football, roller hockey and remote-control car racing.
This latest initiative underlines DORE’s ethos to support local communities as part of its focus on sustainable investing.
Danielle Strothers, Head of Asset Management at DORE, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the efforts to keep the Piddlehinton Gym open. Helping facilities that directly impact the community’s wellbeing and overall health aligns with our values as a sustainable investment manager. We look forward to seeing the gym back in full operation soon and will continue to support other local businesses and communities around our renewable energy assets.”
