23 Mar Local Gymnastic School Pleas for Help
Iceni Gymnasts Club in Colchester has launched a fundraising page, following its closure last week due to the Corona Virus outbreak.
Taking heed of Government advice, Iceni Gymnastics Club has cancel all its classes until further notice to help slow the spread of Corona Virus.
In an effort to protect the future of the club, a fundraising page has been set up and the club is calling on gymnasts and Colchester residents to support it now when it needs it most. “We were devastated to have to close our doors last week, but it was the right thing to do,” explains head coach, Annette Bateson. “We have worked so hard to build a successful and high performing club with some fantastic gymnasts and coaches who dedicate so much time and effort. We obviously don’t know how long the closure will last and it’s a very worrying time for everyone involved.
“We are hoping our Just Giving page will raise much needed funds to ensure we can continue to operate and offer exceptional gymnastics training once we are back up and running. We appreciate any contributions that people can give,” adds Annette.
The Just Giving page has been set up by coach, Louise White, with a current target of £500. Annette is hoping that club goers and friends will pledge donations to ensure the future of the gymnastics school.
