    Weʼve raised £375 to improve facilities at Dorchester YMCA Gymnastics

    Funded on Wednesday, 22nd September 2021

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Dorchester YMCA premises requires enlargement to provide a buggy park and waiting and viewing area for parents of children attending gymnastics classes. I am the oldest gymnast in the club and have had many years of enjoyment in the adult gymnastics class, the coaches are brilliant and very patient and encouraging and have never given up on trying to help me do a cartwheel or a somersault!

    In July I am walking the Coast to Coast path from St Bees in Cumbria to Robin Hood’s Bay in Yorkshire - a total of 190 miles in 16 days ( plus extra mileage for getting lost). I am walking with my sister and between us we have 3 dodgy knees, 1 dodgy hip, 1 dodgy ankle, 2 dodgy wrists and very dodgy map reading skills!
