Wow - what an amazing response, thank you to everyone so far who's contributed. Only a day has passed but the size of the challenge of making sure all the children can continue doing gymnastics in the interim is just becoming clear. We need emergency equipment to use in temporary accommodation once secured, we need to transport the squads to the generous clubs in Cornwall that are offering us use of their facilities, we need to replace so many 'little' but expensive bits such as handguards and leotards which we need now whilst the inevitably long process through insurance and planning and eventual rebuild is carried out.
Some great progress has been made by the leadership team in securing interim arrangements and hopefully the children will be back training soon where they belong - your contributions will mean that we have more chance of equipping the temporary spaces into suitable training gyms, that we can transport the children to temporary facilities and that all of them will continue to get so much from the sport they love. Thank you, you're awesome x
