Trampoline club completes fundraising mission

Recoil Trampoline Club complete tuk tuk journey
A trampoline club from Brentwood, Essex has completed their 963 mile tuk tuk mission, raising £6000 to improve access for disabled gymnasts into their club. 

Recoil Trampoline Club set out on their journey on 14th April from Lands End and drove their way up to John O'Groats, crossing the finishing line on the 28th April.

Club trustees, Tricia Sharpe and Anita Keen, who came up with the initial idea, endured the whole journey and were joined by fellow club members, Beryl McMillan and Wendy Kelleher on parts of their trip.

Over the two weeks, the club were helped on their journey by donations towards accomodation and food from local communities as they worked their way up the country, raising awareness of disability trampolining and the benefits the activity can bring. 

As a result, the club surpassed their £5000 target and the money raised from the trip will go towards building a new automatic door entry system that will allow wheelchair users better access to their centre.

British Gymnastics would like to congratulate Tricia, Anita and Recoil Trampoline Club for their efforts.
