Help - We Need You
Ready Steady Gymnastics is more than just a gymnastics club; to many of our members we are a second family. We value each and every one of our gymnasts and want you and your families to stay safe during this difficult time. We started in a church hall and a trailer and have grown in to a unique gymnastics club supporting over 780 children in Coventry to get them fit, active and empowering children to do their best rather than be the best.
Whilst we appreciate this is an uncertain time, we are doing our upmost to remain positive and doing everything we can to ensure we can come back and open up our doors to all of our amazing customers as soon as safely possible.
With our business interruption loan being declined by the bank we are turning to the community. We heavily rely on your continued support and our gymnast's dedication to help keep our club alive - your donation could be the difference between us being able to re-open or the sad possibility of us not being here in the future.
We wanted to ensure transparency for those of you that are donating to Ready Steady Gymnastics and give more information as to what the funds are for:
We run permanently from a sports centre and our essential overheads include rent, finance payments on our top of the range Gymnova equipment, and payroll for our awesome coaching and admin team, totalling over £25k per month.
Although we have manged to furlough the team for now, when we reopen we have to be realistic that the recovery from this awful pandemic could take up to six months to return to normal in addition to the strain already being put on the business which is why we are crowdfunding during this uncertain times.
We’d just like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all of our amazing customers and the incredible gymnasts for your ongoing support; we wouldn’t be the club we are today without you all.
