8hours + 14 tills + 32 gymnasts = £1561

On Saturday May 27th thirty-two of our gymnasts and their families spent an amazing day at Morrisons supermarket in Wetherby

… eight & a half hours

….fourteen tills

…. hundreds of happy customer’s bags packed

… and an unbelievable final total raised of £1561.

 

A wonderful team spirit prevailed and too many compliments to mention on our wonderfully behaved, polite and hard working girls.
Morrisons thought we did such a fantastic job they have invited us back again and agreed to display our giant banner outside the store. This is a reflection of the character and behaviour of our gymnasts.

 

 
An enormous thanks to all who took part and supported us on a sunny Bank Holiday weekend, including the helpful & welcoming staff of Morrisons and, of course, not forgetting a huge thanks to the incredibly generous folks of Wetherby.
 
We also created a lot of interest in the Club and are looking forward to welcoming a number of girls for taster sessions on the beginners class.
 
Top quotes from the day
 
“The girls were brilliant… I could have just burst with pride!” … Gymnast mum
 
“Your team has been exceptional” … Morrisons representative’
