Clothing collection appeal returns

Items requestedWe’re starting another clothes recycling fundraiser this week – back by popular demand, writes coach Becca.

We’re working with Roberts Recycling after our last successful collection netted 561kg in clothing worth £252 to our ongoing fundraising appeal.

Gymnasts in all classes will be given a bag to fill. Once they are full, any clean plastic bag can be used.  Ask your family and friends to donate too. Please see the image for the items that are acceptable.

Bags need to be returned to the Gwernaffield gym by Saturday 6 October or to the Pre-school classes on Saturday 6 October and we will take them to Gwernaffield.

Thanks in advance for your continued support.
