We need your support
After a difficult two years, our Foundation has been working harder than ever to ensure that people remain supported during the pandemic.
Since March 2020, there’s been a 2,900% increase in demand for Hardship Grants. To date, we have supported everyone whose application was approved, with £173,198 worth of personal awards being granted to 514 individuals, helping them to stay in gymnastics.
On top of this, we have evolved our Love to Move programme, delivering sessions face-to-face and online. From April 2020 to February 2021, we delivered over 200 sessions online, reaching 100,000 viewers. On average, each of our Love to Move trainer delivers 50 sessions a year, supporting hundreds of people in care homes and community centres across the UK.
As a result of the pandemic, we need your support in order to carry on delivering the initiatives that they deliver.
Patrick Bonner, Head of the British Gymnastics Foundation commented: “The levels of hardship in our community have never been greater and some of the situations that we have seen our applicants facing are truly heart-breaking. We are working really hard to support all those that need our help, but now we need help from the gymnastics community to raise more funds, or we simply won’t be able to support everyone who needs our help!”
How your payment will make a difference
No matter if you pay £5, 10 or £15, towards the draw, your money will help our Foundation to change someone’s life.
For example, £50, could fund the assessment of a brand-new Love to Move deliverer, or pay a young gymnast’s club fees for two months.
