Life-saving equipment appeal

AED logo showing white heart on green backgroundMoney raised from the Winter Extravaganza Raffle will help start our fundraising to have an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) at the Gwernaffield Gym, writes coach Becca.

A defibrillator is a device that helps someone who is in cardiac arrest.

There are defibrillators at Mold Golf Club and near the Church Hall in Gwernaffield but we know that with every minute of delay in administering defibrillation there is a 10% decrease in survival, according to St John Ambulance.

That is why we want to raise money to have a Community Access Defibrillator on the Gwernaffield site.

To start our fundraising we are asking for donations of National Lottery Scratchcards to put on ‘scratchcard Christmas trees’ to raffle at the Winter Extravaganza.

If you would like to donate directly towards our fundraising for this device, please contact Becca Bailey via Facebook.

Winter Extravaganza

Our Winter Extravaganza is being held at Gwernaffield Gym on Sunday 9 December.

Entry on the day is £5 per adult (children free) and entry includes tea/coffee and a mince pie.

Please share car journeys as parking is limited and please do not arrive more than 15 minutes before your child’s performance due to limited parking.

For info, can General and Preschool class parents only attend
the show in which your gymnast is performing, again due to timings and limited parking?

Development, Intermediate and Advanced parents will be informed which performance to attend by the class coaches.

We are asking for donations of National Lottery scratchcards to go towards a very special fundraising raffle which could prove to be a lifesaver.

Money raised will start our appeal to have an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) at the Gwernaffield Gym in the event of an emergency.

A defibrillator is a device that can help someone who is in cardiac arrest.

If you would like to donate directly towards our fundraising for this device, please contact coach Becca.
