This grant, together with one from Sport England, takes the total up to £400,000 against a target of £2,100,000. 

The grant will help the redevelopment of the centre into a new purpose-built modern community hub with a low carbon footprint, providing high quality watersports and outdoor activities for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

Phil Atkinson, the centre’s Development Director said: “We are delighted that The London Marathon Charitable Trust has agreed to support our project. The new building and grounds will provide a positive and welcoming focus for all our visitors and a solid base for our future work in the community. This will enable us to expand participation, add new activities and properly welcome disabled and disadvantaged people to our range of water and land sports."
