Gym­nasts launch ap­peal

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

MEM­BERS of a Tay­side gym­nas­tics club are bend­ing over back­wards to raise £30,000 for a pur­pose-built cen­tre.

Phoenix Gym­nas­tics Club, which trains at var­i­ous venues, has launched a crowd­fund­ing cam­paign to raise £3,500 to kick­start its am­bi­tious project.

The club’s mem­bers hope to turn the dis­used ten­nis courts at the for­mer Lochside Leisure Cen­tre in For­far into the first pur­pose-built gym­nas­tics cen­tre in An­gus.

A crowd­fund­ing page stated:“Over the years our gym­nasts have achieved top rank­ings at com­pe­ti­tions and gained en­try to var­i­ous dif­fer­ent squad struc­tures. We are open to all and pro­vide op­por­tu­ni­ties for the com­plete be­gin­ner right through to the com­pet­i­tive-level gym­nasts cel­e­brat­ing all suc­cesses, big or small.

“To be able to have a pur­pose-built fa­cil­ity in our home town would have such a pos­i­tive im­pact on the development of all our gym­nasts.”
