Both projects have been funded by ExxonMobil at Fawley with a combined donation of £3,000. Ian Souch, Centre and Sports Development Manager at Gang Warily, said: “Both of these projects have been made possible entirely thanks to the generosity of ExxonMobil at Fawley.
“The push-button doors will help to make sure that those who have physical limitations will now be able to access the gym without having to ask someone for help. Having the defibrillator directly outside the building could potentially save lives as well as giving those in the local community the reassurance of knowing it is there.”
Members of the Gang Warily Inclusive Group, which is assists people with physical limitations to take part in physical activities, were at the ribbon-cutting ceremonies on December 2, along with Fawley parish councillors, staff from the recreation centre and Angharad Vaughan, Community Affairs Adviser at ExxonMobil at Fawley.
Angharad said: “We are delighted to have been able to help fund both these incredibly worthwhile projects at Gang Warily. Supporting local community initiatives is very important to us, especially when they make a real difference to people’s lives.”
