2024 Price increases
01 December 2023 10:00
We live in challenging times, that much is clear to us all. The price of everything is increasing and the ‘cost of living crisis’ is a stark and real reality negatively affecting so many of us.
At Sportily we want to provide safe, fun and exciting ways for everyone to get active and experience the wellbeing befits of sport and physical activity.
As a charity we fundraise and are supported by the Church of England in Gloucestershire, to help us keep the costs of our activities as low as possible. In addition to this we run lots of ‘free to attend’ activities, support schools and happily offer discounts to anyone who needs them. This is part of our commitment to being ‘…Open to all’.
We can’t however run all our activities without charge, just like households, we have costs, and they are increasing. As a Real Living Wage and Living Pension employer, our staff costs have increased. Energy cost increases mean that the venues we hire for activities have understandably put their prices up. Every other cost associated with existing as a charity, such as insurance, services and equipment have also increased.
Since we launched in 2021 we haven’t increased the prices of our activities, but unfortunately as we enter 2024 the price of some of our activities will have to increase.
Please know that we are doing everything we can to keep those increases reasonable, and as a charity you can be assured that we’re not making a profit to pass on to shareholders. Everything you pay goes towards enabling those activities to run.
If cost becomes a barrier to attendance, please drop us a message or an email and we’ll happily provide you with a discount code for the activity you are looking to book
Thank you for your ongoing support and for being part of #TeamSportily.
