Borough firms help fund gymnast group’s trip of a lifetime


A group of talented young gymnasts will soon be making their way to Belgium to compete in one of the world’s biggest gymnastics events after receiving backing from a number of businesses in the borough.

Gedling Homes and Arnold-based heating firm T&S Heating were among the firms contributing cash to enable Nottingham City Gymnastics Community attend Eurogym, which takes place in Belgium next year.

Keepmoat Homes, who recently began work on the Chase Farm development in Gedling, have also contributed to the funding drive.

The cash will contribute towards the cost of sending 36 gymnasts to the event which provides a platform for 11-18 year olds to showcase their gymnastics skills.

David Perry, club manager at Nottingham City Gymnastics Community, said: “A massive thank you to the organisations who have supported the EuroGym fundraising efforts. We are going to use the funds to purchase performance outfits, EuroGym hoodies for the gymnasts to travel in and to perform in over in Belgium. We really appreciate your help!”

Tracey Fertaki, customer services manager at Keepmoat Regeneration said: “Gymnastics offers so many health and well-being benefits, so we’re glad to have been able to support a club that offers these sessions. We hope the gymnasts have a great time in Belgium and wish them all the best with their performance.”

Jason Cannon, director at Gedling Homes said: “When the gymnastics club approached us for sponsorship, we were more than happy to support them. At Gedling Homes, we encourage the wellbeing of young people and promote active lifestyles, so it was important for us to use part of our EEM Community Grant funding to support a club that offers such a great service to local people.”
