Jubilee Hall Trust retains Parliamentary gym contract
14th February 2017
After a competitive tendering process, Jubilee Hall Trust (JHT) is delighted to announce that they have been awarded a new contract to manage the Westminster Gym in the Houses of Parliament.
Jubilee Hall Trust is a registered charity and they have been successfully delivering the existing gym and wellbeing service contract since 1999. In that time, JHT has grown gym membership, increased the range and quality of services and received excellent feedback. In the last user survey, 100% of gym members said that the staff service was good or excellent.
JHT Chief Executive, Phil Rumbelow said:
‘We are very pleased that the Parliamentary Authority has seen fit to offer us a renewal of our contract. We are a small operator in a highly competitive central London market, and we know that they had many other organisations bidding for this prestigious opportunity. We have always believed passionately in the important need for the two Houses’ Members, Peers and employees to have a facility for physical activity and a service for wellbeing, and our exceptional staff team have been delivering this to a very high standard for some time. It is they who can take great credit for this endorsement.
‘As a long-established charity, we offer substantial discounts of up to 75% off the full prices at our three public clubs for low income groups, and we also run a wide range of community programmes. We will use all surpluses generated by this contract to further our charitable aims or to re-invest in our facilities. No surpluses are distributed to shareholders, and the Westminster Gym service will be provided at zero cost to the taxpayer.
‘Last year, we delivered over 350,000 exercise sessions across our facilities and programmes, and 24% of these were free or heavily discounted for key target groups.’
