LATE SUMMER BALL

What a fantastic evening we all had at the Late Summer Ball. A big thank you to everyone who attended, and another thank you to all those who donated prizes, bid on the auction, made a donation in lieu of attendance etc - all is very much appreciated. These events would not be so successful without all the support we receive.

Photos of the night will be uploaded shortly. 

The fundraising team would like to thank (with web links where available):

LATE SUMMER BALL

Tickets for our fantastic Late Summer Ball on Friday 12th September are now on sale. The cost is £40 per head, which will include a sit down meal and live music. An auction and raffle will also be held. This is a fantastic social occasion, and always a great night out, as can be seen by pictures from previous years. 

As we spent more money than we raised last year, this is a vital event to replenish our funds, so please support us. We look forward to seeing you there!

Club Championships 2014

A big THANK YOU to everyone who donated cakes and tombola prizes, or who helped us in any way at the Club Championships on 22nd June. We managed to take over £1,000 on the barbecue, cake stall and tombola, which is the highest we have raised at the championships so far. Thank you so much. This money will go back into the funds for the gymnasts to assist in future competitions.

We thought we'd take the opportunity to update you on our sponsors. We are into our fourth year of sponsorship by Imtech UK and our second year by Pinewoods Property Services. At the Club Championships each year the Imtech Cup is awarded to the winning elite acrobat and the Pinewoods Cup to the winning elite tumbler.

The holders so far:

Imtech Cup Pinewoods Cup
2014 Sophie Reynolds 2014 Millie Gower
2013 Katie Blackford 2013 Oliver Coombs
2012 Hayley Cowler    
2011 Vanessa Lima    


Finally, please put these two dates in your diaries. This year's Ball will again be held in the Orangery at Shepperton Studios, a fabulous venue for what is always a fantastic night. We will also be running another Sponsored Walk at the magnificant Virginia Water Lake.

2014 CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS

The annual Spelthorne Gymnastics Club Championships takes place on Sunday 22nd June. This is one of the main events we use during the year to help raise funds so that we can issue grants to assist with competition costs for gymnasts. Again this year we are running the barbecue, a cake stall and a tombola.  
 
We are looking for donations of home made cakes (and biscuits) for the cake stall, and also prizes to be given for the tombola.
 
Prizes that are usually popular are bottles of wine/spirits/soft drinks etc, non perishables, ie chocolates etc, and also small packs of toiletries and stationery. If every squad member could purchase one small item (obviously you can donate more if you like!) on their next weekly shop and donate to us, it would be really helpful, and would provide us with a large amount of prizes for the tombola.  
 
There will be a box in the reception area where donations can be placed. 
 
Cakes are mostly purchased for the children, so they don't have to be of award winning standard; cupcakes/fairy cakes are always popular. Please bring them along on the day.

Thank you in advance for your donations. We look forward to seeing you on 22nd June.
