Get bouncing, Tynesiders urged in big charity drive.

THE jumping skills of Tyneside residents are needed to help get Britain bouncing.

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is asking people to sign up for the massive jump and hopes to get one million people bouncing on the same day.

Clubs, schools and businesses are being urged to join in the national event taking place on June 27 during Cystic Fibrosis Week.

Martin Schofield, chief executive officer of Super Tramp which is supporting the campaign, said: "You don't need a trampoline to take part, you could be on a rebounder, space hopper or pogo stick, you just need to bounce.

"Get Britain Bouncing aims to publicise trampolining as a fun and safe activity for all the family and we think this is a great way to highlight how much fun bouncing is."

Joining the campaign is The Cystic Fibrosis Trust in a bid to highlight the health benefits of bouncing to cystic fibrosis sufferers.

Senior fundraising manager for the charity, Sue Piper said: "We know that families of children who have cystic fibrosis often use trampolines as a fun way to help them do their daily physio and we're delighted to be part of this campaign." World and European medal winning trampolinist Laura Gallagher is also supporting the drive.
