A remarkable story of a social enterprise development & achievement against all odds............... Over 30 years ago, concerned parents, living surrounded by water felt that their children had a right to be taught to swim. Campaigning and fundraising for a swimming pool began, and by 1991 £1 million had been raised by the community enabling their “dream pool” to be built. The conversion of a redundant Morrison Bowmore whisky bond on the romantic Isle of Islay off the west coast of Scotland resulted in The Mactaggart Leisure Centre being born, comprising of a swim pool, sauna, gym, launderette, hairdressers & mutli purpose room. 21 years later the Mactaggart Leisure Centre is an award winning establishment, continuing to provide all that’s best in Health, Leisure, Social Recreation & Education for everyone on the Isles of Islay and Jura. Through training, volunteering & employment we provide a wide range of activities & services for all age groups in response to community demand. As a stand alone enterprise the Mactaggart Leisure Centre relies on grants, private trusts, foundations & general donations for its continued existence. Please donate as much as you can to a very deserving cause.
