GLL, which runs Cornwall leisure centres on behalf of the council, is offering free passes and vouchers to 16-30 year olds who provide proof of vaccines.

GLL is offering anyone between 16yrs – 30yrs a £10 voucher to be used against any membership at a Better-operated leisure facility and a three-day free pass to any of its leisure centres or gyms.

Participating leisure centres across Cornwall include Bude, Liskeard, Saltash, Launceston, Wadebridge, Truro, Newquay, Falmouth, Helston, Bodmin, St Ives and St Austell.

In order to take up the offer, local residents need to need to complete the form available on the Better website and follow theinstructions. They will also need to present their vaccination card or alternative proof on their first visit to their local Better leisure centre or gym.

Mark Sesnan, Managing Director at Better said:

“As soon as we heard about the campaign to incentivise young people to get vaccinated, we wanted to get involved. As the UK’s largest operator of municipal leisure facilities, we know the value of regular exercise on our mental and physical health and this has been further highlighted during the pandemic. We also know that having all adults double vaccinated plays a crucial role in our battle against COVID-19, so we wanted to help.

“We hope that by offering free passes and discount vouchers to our 235 gyms, leisure and sports centres across the UK, we will encourage many more young people to take up their vaccine.”
