Mallaig Pool and Leisure has appealed for more helpers as the current team looks to step down.

The leisure centre has been supported over the past 25 years by the Friends of Mallaig Pool and Leisure, a dedicated group of volunteers who help fund wages, buy fitness equipment, fund vital repairs and help with yearly budgets.

In a statement issued earlier this week, the management said: ‘The Friends has been run by the same volunteers for more years than we can count. We’re so grateful for everything they’ve done and all the time they’ve given. However, they now want to step aside and pass on the baton.’

The pool is looking for a chairman, treasurer, events manager and secretary and general members. Formal meetings take place every two months with a goal of raising £10,000 each year.
