Help us raise money for our Hardship Grants Programme and help keep gymnasts in our sport.
Many gymnasts in our community are unable to return to the sport due to the financial impact that has been caused by the coronavirus.
On 1st July we opened a special round of Covid-19 Hardship Grant funding for British Gymnastics members who were unable to continue taking part in gymnastics to due financial issues.
We have since been inundated with applications. We have heard some truly heart-breaking stories from families who have lost jobs, have been unable to pay utility bills and have had to use food banks for the first time in their lives.
We have managed to help many people who have been in touch however, there are still many gymnasts that need our support and we need your help to do this!
That is why we are running our ‘Leave No One Behind’ campaign, to shine a light on how our Hardship Grants Programme supports our community and makes a difference to the lives of so many gymnasts.
We will be sharing stories on our website and across our digital channels from families who have been supported by our special Covid-19 Hardship Grants to show the impact that your donation can make.
As well as this, from 13th – 20th September, we are encouraging our followers to take part in the 13.1 challenge. Joining with friends, family and fellow gymnasts, show us how you are leaving no one behind by completing 13.1 miles across the week in any way you can. This could be all in one go or spread over a week, on your own or splitting the distance with other people, running, walking or cycling – it’s 13.1 your way.
With your donations, we can support more families struggling financially to make sure that we leave no one behind.
