A £400,000 appeal has been launched to build a new community fitness and leisure centre on the site of a former car showroom.
Lee Wall, who runs East Anglian Mixed Martial Arts Academy (EAMMA), wants to build the new facility on the former Mazda garage in London Road South, Kirkley.
The centre will include a gym, sports halls, a space for martial arts, archery facilities, swimming pools, a shop and a café . It will offer heavily discounted rates for local residents to enable more people to take part in sporting activities.
Mr Wall said: 'We want to raise the money to buy the old Mazda garage before it is sold to a developer and houses go on there.
'We want to see it turned into something that is going to contribute to the community.'
