An outdoor gym and Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) for Orpheus

We would like to build an outdoor gym and a multi use games area (MUGA) to give our students and staff the opportunity to get more active and lead healthier lifestyles.   We plan to create a facility which will inspire the whole Orpheus community to get active and to build a gym which with a diverse range of products to deliver cardiovascular exercises to improve the overall well-being of the heart, blood flow and lungs, strength training to build muscles for strength and endurance, and flexibility to help the body to become more supple.  It will also have a profound effect on our students' emotional and mental wellbeing.

The addition of a MUGA would create opportunities for integrated games for all of our students. MUGA surfaces are rapidly growing in popularity and are becoming an ever more common feature in schools, colleges and universities, public parks and academies, not only across the UK, but around the world. MUGA surfaces make it possible to provide facilities for multiple sports even where space and available funds are at a premium. Designed to provide optimal playing properties and protection against injuries, they are also hard-wearing, long-lasting and easy to maintain.

We need to raise £130,000 to enable us to build this facility.
