We did it

To ensure the safe return and survival of our beloved gymnastics club for the children of Windsor, Maidenhead and surrounding areas.

What are we funding for?

Since March and due to the Covid-19 crisis, we've been unable to offer gymnastics at the club.  We have over 800 local children aged 18 months to 18 years missing their sport!

We have had some members still pay their fees or reduced fees for which we are so very grateful for and this has covered some of outgoings.  That said, our small reserves were not designed for a crisis of this duration and so we have been looking at next steps.

Our income has been severely affected through not being able to be able to run PlayGym and we have cancelled our Club Championships which is a significant source of income, relied upon each year to support the growth and development of the club. We are also continuing to employ the services of our coaches to ensure that they are financially secure, still with us when we return, and to keep the fabric of the club alive by delivering online training and content. 

We will need additional funds to manage a safe return to gymnastics (e.g. more time and equipment to accommodate social distancing measures).

Lastly we are in the final stages of our dream to move to the new club in Fifield – this will involve a large fundraising campaign and any spare funds are being directed to this goal.

In short, we need some reserves to see us through this crisis.

Double your money!

The good news is that Sport England and Crowdfunder have now launched a fund to help us. Importantly, the fund will double any contributions that we make.  We have set a target of raising £10,000 by the end of July which if successful will then be boosted by Sport England to a final total of £20,000!

Many thanks in advance for your support
