NICHOLAS Electrical Distributors Tough Mudder for Charity
10 members of staff are doing the Tough Mudder Half Course on Sunday 9th September at Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire to raise funds for this fantastic cause. Please help us by making a donation!
The Manchester Academy of (Community) Gymnastics (MAG) is the brainchild of local couple Maxine and Mike Grech. Having lived in the Salford area their whole lives, they understand the importance of sport to the local communities and being from humble beginnings they are acutely aware of how difficult it is for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and deprived areas to access good, safe, inspirational and affordable sporting facilities within their communities.
This project is their way of giving something back to the local community and they have a vision of providing a world-class state of the art sports and recreation facility, operated as a charity, not for profit organisation which will enable young people, irrelevant of social disadvantages or disabilities, to achieve as much as possible, giving them a platform to help them achieve in their chosen discipline and helping them get the best start in life.
Whether it’s a lack of ambition, local facilities, negative behaviour and attitudes, or opportunities, the current childhood crisis is well documented. The Manchester Academy of Gymnastics will be designed to give young people aged 2 – 18 years old (22 for those with a disability) opportunities to progress through our Try Train Team modules in several sporting and recreational activities.
Centred on, but not limited to Gymnastics, Dance, Wrestling and Boxing, the centre will focus on offering state of the art facilities to the most deprived in Salford and Greater Manchester, giving them opportunities to try the sports on offer, train in their chosen disciplines and progress onto the team training where they can be supported into achieving their full potential.
