Hometown Heroes

Calling all heroes!

Nominate your favourite Hometown Hero to win a free, one-year Premium Membership at your local Places Leisure site! All ages included! 38 memberships to be won!

For the past 12 months, throughout the pandemic—ordinary people have done extraordinary things.

Through national lockdowns and regional lockdowns, countless, ordinary men, women, children and teens, from all walks of life, all ages and all industries—did extraordinary, self-sacrificing things for their communities. Things that made a difference. Acts of kindness and pure benevolence that made their communities, friends and families proud. Does that sound like someone you know?

If you know someone who went above and beyond for their hometown and local community, whether as part of their job, or in their precious spare time, we’d like to know about it!

Places Leisure is celebrating the nation’s Hometown Heroes. We’re giving away free, one-year, Premium Memberships at our leisure centres up and down the country. We want to show our Hometown Heroes that their acts of kindness matter and give them the gift of health and fitness for one whole year.

Nominees will be segmented by region, then chosen at random. Each winner will receive a free one-year Premium Membership at their chosen local site, while our youth winners (those aged 15 and under) will receive a free Junior Membership.

ALL nominees will receive a free 14-day membership pass as a thank you for their heroism and acts of kindness.

To nominate your favourite Hometown Hero, please complete the form below.

Places Leisure is delighted to be giving the gift of health and fitness to some of our nation’s superstars. Never before has health and wellbeing been of such great importance. Whether regular exercise is part of your family routine, self-care, mental health or social routine—your local Places Leisure Centre is getting ready to welcome you back and support you on your fitness journey. Let’s get fit, together.
