Community Interest Statement

ORGANISATION MISSION STATEMENT

'To consistently provide high quality, life enhancing, leisure and recreation activities to our local communities. We strive for continuous development in a fun and safe environment'.

WE BELIEVE

O'Tooles believes everybody should have the chance to learn to swim and enjoy the benefits of an active lifestyle. We also realise that capturing peoples interest from an early age will help lead to an active future.

It's no secret that exercise can help with weight loss, toning and shaping. It also makes you feel more confident about your appearance and helps to relieve stress. Sport and exercise can act as a deterrent to cancer, osteoporosis, type II diabetes and coronary heart disease amongst others.

In short – exercise makes you look and feel better.

Yet on average people in the UK spend 10 minutes per day on sport or outdoor activities, compared to 170 minutes watching TV.

At O'Tooles, we're committed to doing everything we can to turn that around.
