Notts Gymnastics Academy launch fundraising campaign for new equipment

Nottingham Gymnastic Academy, located on the Rushcliffe School site, are asking the community to support their fundraising efforts for new equipment to support the athletes who train there, many of who represent our country at events including the Olympics.

 

Academy Director, Nila Bowdler told The Wire:

“At Notts Gymnastics Academy (NGA), we are always seeking to live our values and Be Our Best – providing the best possible opportunities for all our gymnasts.

“NGA is a registered charity, and we invest what we make back into the organisation for the benefit of our members. To offer top level equipment across our Academy, we as a community pull together and work extremely hard to frequently engage in fundraising opportunities.

“We are currently fundraising for two new pieces of equipment: a Spieth Pommel Horse for our eligible athletes to train in preparation for upcoming Commonwealth Games trials.

 

“We are also in desperate need of a new Gymnova High Beam, so we can help our recreational  gymnastics bridge the gap and support those aspiring gymnasts on their journey to competitive gymnastics.

“The total cost of these two apparatus is £6000. We are hugely grateful to Councillor Jonathan Wheeler, who has pledged £1000 to support our cause, and we are planning holiday camps to share our expertise with the local community to come and train with us at NGA to raise additional funds.

“We are reaching out to you, our local community and asking for any donations to support our equipment fundraiser via our Justgiving page (Notts Gymnastics Academy – JustGiving). Any donation you can give, would be hugely appreciated and will benefit the hundreds of gymnasts we see come through our doors every week”.

 

West Bridgford South County Councillor Jonathan Wheeler adds his support: “I have been to the Academy on a number of occasions, including at the end of year display.

“The quality of the displays, from young children through to young adults was superb. We have had Olympic athletes train at this venue in our Community, and we should be very proud of that.

“I am delighted to support the fundraising efforts with a donation from my Councillors Divisional Fund.’
