Every year on the lead up up to Christmas we feel its important to give back to the local community.
Our charity and community involvements span throughout the year as we know the importance of it but at Christmas time, there’s an extra push we like to dedicate to the local food banks.
This is because a lot of families do not have the privileges we can take for granted, a roof over their head, hot water, electricity let alone money left over to buy presents etc. Families very much like our own, who aren’t homeless but need to survive the food banks provide.
We set out a hamper at the reception to invite members to donate as they were passing…
By the end of the week we were completely blown away by the donations! Members, parents, and coaches all donated big bags of food, toiletries and drinks. We couldn’t believe it. We always drop off the collection on the 23rd of December, but even as we were on route we had calls from the gym telling us more people had popped down with donations. What an amazing turn out!
Next Year we are going to be setting out the hamper at the beginning of December to let it fill as much as possible until the 23rd. We just wanted to say a huge thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the donations from everyone. They make such a difference to families within our community. Thank you!!
We hope everyone’s had an amazing Christmas and has a great New Year! See you in 2020!! 🎉
