A ceremonial opening of a renovated gym has been held at a care home for the elderly and disabled in Lensk (Yakutia). The renovation has become possible due to the help rendered by Transneft East. Walls were painted, floors were levelled and refloored, and modern exercise machinery was installed at the expense of the Company.
The event was attended by representatives of Lensk municipal authorities, employees of Transneft East, and, of course, the residents of the nursing home.
“We have high hopes that the new gym will not only offer the elderly yet another way to spend their spare time, but will also contribute to improving the health of our residents,” emphasised Maksim Pavlov, Deputy Director of Lensk Regional Oil Pipeline Directorate, a branch of Transneft East. After the welcoming speech, the guest oil pipeliners presented a gift to the social institution – a tea set and a vacuum flask.
Sponsoring the renovation of the gym at the care home is not the only charitable project implemented by Transneft East in Lensk.
This year, a multipurpose sportsground has been arranged in the centre of the city, including a futsal field and two basketball courts. In addition to that, children attending the Cheburashka nursery school have received a new outdoor playground, while fitness and sports institutions have been provided with table tennis training equipment, a wrestling mat, and a dismountable podium.
7.6 million robles have been allocated for the renovation of three classrooms at school No. 3 – the physics, chemistry and math classrooms, along with acquisition of visual aids, teaching material and furniture for the school. The project has been implemented within the school education development charitable programme implemented by Transneft in its regions of operation.
Next year, exact sciences classrooms will be renovated at secondary school No. 2. Transneft East is allocating more than 7 million roubles for this purpose.
For reference: the support rendered by Transneft East to Lensk since 2010 has exceeded 24 million roubles.
