Together for Short Lives is David Lloyd Leisure Charity of the Year

Together for Short Lives is delighted to announce that the members and staff of David Lloyd Leisure have chosen Together for Short Lives as their official national charity partner for 2013.

In a new charity selection process introduced by Europe’s premier health, sports and leisure group this year, members and staff were asked to nominate their favourite charities and then vote on a final shortlist of candidates.

David Lloyd Leisure’s chief executive, Scott Lloyd, commented: “David Lloyd Leisure is committed to supporting the invaluable work undertaken by charities both at a national level and among the local communities of which our clubs form an integral part. This year, we asked our members and team members to nominate and vote for our national charity partner, and they have shown us how passionate they feel about supporting great causes.

“Children and families are at the core of David Lloyd Leisure’s offering and it is very appropriate that we will be supporting Together for Short Lives, a remarkable charity that’s making a real difference to so many. We look forward to involving our clubs, colleagues and members in a variety of fundraising and awareness initiatives to support this very special cause.”

Stephen Ballantyne, director of fundraising for Together for Short Lives, said: “We are absolutely delighted and honoured that so many David Lloyd Leisure members and staff took the time to vote for us. Their support will help us raise much-needed funds for thousands of seriously ill children and their families who rely on the vital care provided by local children’s hospices across the country.”
