Milton Keynes Gymnastics based in Kingston is delighted to have taken delivery of new equipment especially purchased for the disabilities group at the centre.
The equipment was funded through in house fund raising, and precious grants from MK Community Foundation’s Margaret Powell Community 1st Fund.
Mk Gymnastics Director Gary Winder said’ This new, specially ordered equipment will help provide the best possible experience to the disability gymnasts programme, ensuring that gymnastics is adapted to meet each child’s individual needs. It enables us to provide up to date, fun, cognitive learning experience in a more engaging environment at every lesson.
It was used for the first time by some of the centre’s disability gymnasts for the first-time last Saturday, as they returned to their classes for the first time since Covid 19 closed them 16 months ago!
Head Disabilities coach Denise Phillips said’ Firstly, I would like to say a huge thank you for the well-received grant that was awarded to our disabilities section. To be able to work with equipment which has been bought specifically with disabilities in mind, has allowed our team of coaches to provide a higher level and more varied programme for all our gymnasts. All our gymnasts were so excited when they first saw the new equipment, especially the sectional vaults, platforms, and soft-landing mats. I would personally like to thank MK Community Foundation and The Board of Trustees here at MK Gym for awarding us this grant which has been very much appreciated.’
“This new, specially-designed mini-bus will help us provide the best possible service to older people in Newport Pagnell for many years to come. We’d like to thank everyone involved and especially the Harry Middleton Trust, MK Community Foundation and the members of the public who supported us in the Tesco blue token scheme. The grants we received and the money we won helped us get the mini-bus into service as soon as possible.”
