    Weʼve raised £2,073 to buy a new Gymnastics Vaulting Table

    Haddington, UK
    Funded on Monday, 26th November 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    My son Cameron is 8 years old and has the disability of Global Development Delay. 4 years ago he joined Duo Gymnastics Club in Haddington. The club consistently impress me with the level of care and attention they provide to Cameron and their supportive approach has been a key element that encourages Cameron to grow in confidence and successfully tackle many of the challenges that life presents to him. He always looks forward to his weekly class at the Duo Gymnastics Club.

    The Club based in Haddington, East Lothian have been fund raising for a new vaulting table for a number of years, but they just never seem to have enough to purchase it and ironically when they finally reach their target the equipment has increased in cost.

    To express my sincere thanks to the Club, I have set myself the objective to raise enough funds for the new vaulting table by swimming across the Firth of Forth on the 22nd September. The swim starts from South Queensferry leaving at Hawes pier, swimming along by the rail bridge to finish at the old pier at North Queensferry a distance of 1.4 miles.

    By donating you will be helping the Duo Gymnastics Club to continue to support children as all the money raised will be put towards the new vaulting table. If you can, please help me make this possible.

      Well, it's all over! Due to the very strong current, the swim was way tougher than I had anticipate but I made it, land to land. Swimming right by the rail bridge really was amazing experience and something I will never forget. Your donations and support have been overwhelming and I am absolutely delighted to have raised more than double the amount I set out to raise. The club are now able to buy the new vaulting table, a new spring board, and a transport trolley, and this is all because of your kindness. Best wishes. Jane x

      Only 5 days to go & I am hoping that hurricane Helene moves along quickly! Once fees from JustGiving are taken off we have raised an amazing £1,630.58. This is just fantastic & we are well on our way to purchasing not one but two pieces of equipment for the kids at Duo Gymnastics. Thank you so much! Heading to the pool now, a final dip at North Berwick on Thurs & a rest day on Fri before the big swim on Saturday.The fundraising page will stay open for another few days for any other donations. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/jane-calder
