Social mark for leisure centre


Carn Brea Leisure Centre Trust has been awarded the Social Enterprise Mark, identifying it as trading for social and environmental purposes.

It joins other ethical businesses to have been awarded the Mark, including the Eden Project, Pentreath Ltd, Age UK, and the Big Issue.

Government data estimates that there are 62,000 social enterprises across the UK, contributing £24 billion to the economy and employing around 800,000 people.

After receiving a tour of the facilities, George Eustice, MP for Camborne and Redruth, presented the official Social Enterprise Mark to members of staff and commented: “The creation of a local social enterprise to take over the running of the centre ten years ago was a fantastic example of local people coming together to save a vital community asset and I am pleased to see it go from strength to strength.”
