Here on this page you will find details of how we raise money for our gymnastics club. We often put on events through out 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 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.
Odd Socks Week
Odd socks week happens four times a year, gymnasts donate £2.00, and wear the most funky or outrageous odd socks to training.
Some even come with bright leg warmers, for a cosier look. This is a week long event. From the 30th April to the 5th May 2018 will be raising money for new sliders. All participation is a huge help.
Onesie week at the gym, will be from the 4th to the 9th of February 2019. The gymnasts will have a fun, comfortable, cosy, and warm week. Donations of £3.00 per gymnast helps the club to raise money for brand new bars.
This is a week long event, and a comfy one at that.
Halloween week at the gym will be from the 26th to the 31st of October 2020. The gymnasts will have a fun week by dressing up in their favourite costume, and all donations of £3.00 per gymnast will help the club to raise money for brand freestanding mini apparatus this is a week-long event. Our goal is £3000.
6th May 2019, we have raised £1895.67 for our brand new asymmetric bars from Gymnova .
We are so close to our goal of £2,278.80. All money raised from our monthly bake sales, odd socks week, and Onesie weeks all go towards the bar fund.
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 money raised goes towards a new set of bars, as our last set of bars got bad water damaged.
