Holborn Gymnastics Club raise funds for Children In Need
Holborn Gymnastics Club was excited to receive a phone call from the BBC this Autumn, inviting them to film as many forward rolls or cartwheels as possible to raise funds for Children In Need.
A brilliant effort was made by all and the competition results are in! Monday’s class saw Beau did the most forward rolls at 22, followed by Eliana who did 100 cartwheels. On Tuesday’s class, Ronja did an amazing 62 forward rolls and Atousa just nudged ahead in the cartwheel stakes with an amazing 101 cartwheels.
Alongside all the cartwheeling and forward rolling the children raised an amazing £730.02 for Children In Need. Including a brilliant effort from Louie Cascarino raising £155 and Poppy Sweeney raising £150!
Marlowe aged 5 told us her favourite part of the competition was “raising money for children who are less fortunate than me”. Margot (aged 7) shared with us she felt “happy she could raise money for children who are in the hospital like she was”.
Kayley (aged 9) was part of the lucky few who went down to the live show and told us “she loved being part of the live show, including the food, the train ride, the magic show and meeting Pudsey the bear.”
A huge thank you to those who sponsored Holborn Gymnastics Club and all the brilliant hard work of the children.
