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.
Monthly Bake Sale
Once a month we have a week full of tasty treats. Our members and staff kindly bake or sometimes buy baked goods. We have everything from cupcakes, and cookies, to scones, and biscuits.
All the money raised will go towards a brand new set of mini apparatus set, which benefits the whole club.
