Jubilee Hall nominated in Active Westminster Awards
20th September 2010
Jubilee Hall has been nominated as an Active Place in the annual Active Westminster awards for it’s outstanding contribution to the health and wellbeing of the local community since 1978.
Jubilee Hall receives no direct public funding or subsidy but relies on selling full price (but excellent value!) memberships to those that can afford it, so that discounted memberships can be offered to those who can’t. More than 1 in 5 of the centre’s regular users receives a concessionary membership because they are unemployed, disabled or otherwise disadvantaged and the number of people receiving these discounts has increased by 40% in the last year. Jubilee Hall also allows free or heavily discounted use of its studio space for local community groups and has carried out a range of charitable projects in Westminster over the last 12 months, including offering free football coaching to St Clement Danes School and free dance classes for seniors in community venues.
