Gymnastics: Junior tumblers needing support.

A GYMNASTICS club is appealing for sponsorship.

Middlesbrough Gymnastics Club is a non-profit, voluntary organisation which trains at Ormesby Sports Complex, Ormesby School in Netherfields.

The club meet twice a week, on Sundays 9.30am until 12noon and Thursdays 7-9pm.

Sunday sessions are for all levels of ability from tots from two years up to young adults of 17 years.

On Sundays the pre-school session is 9.45 - 10.45am, which runs alongside general groups and a group of competitive squad children.

Club spokeswoman, Tina Wells, said: "I think this works well as the little ones look and want to be just as good as the more advanced ones.

"We do a little bit of trampolining in with the session too, which has gone down a treat."

On Thursdays there is a trampolining class from 7-8pm and the more advanced general kids are asked to come along and train with the competitive squad from 7-9pm.

Tina added: "Being a new club, I am so pleased with the response and support from the parents, with offers of help wherever they can.

"We do, however, need to raise funds for some club leotards which cost around pounds 45 each, and we are trying to find out about grants available for some gym mats as Ormesby sports hall, who have been so fantastically helpful too, only have judo mats, and they can be quite hard to jump and land on.

"We would really appreciate anyone who can help with sponsorship to get in touch."
