Fundraising

Here on this page, you will find details of how we raise money for our gymnastics club. We often put on events throughout the year, along with doing monthly bake sales, and collections.

As a small gymnastics club, we always need all the help we can get. It is an expensive sport, and the equipment does not come cheap. We have an amazing set of members, and greatly appreciate all the help we receive.

Every three months or so we collect bags full of clothes and shoes. Usually children have outgrown their clothes, or styles have gone out of fashion. We collect hundreds of bags, which then gets sent off and weighed. Once the bags are weighed, we receive a cheque, which we then put towards our fundraising pot.

Crowdfunding

We are raising money for our club for a month from the 28th of March to the 27th of April 2021. After the Covid-19 pandemic hit we were left without a space to train. Having had to move a couple of times before our equipment has ended up in different locations in storage. Along with all that has happened, and with moving, we found that damage to some of our equipment has occurred. For more information please check out this link here CROWDFUNDING
