Gymnasts are flying high after donation from our building futures initiative

28 September 2021

Cleckheaton gymnasts are jumping with joy after securing a £1,000 donation from West Yorkshire region.

TSV Gymnastics Club plans to upgrade its vaulting table with the funding from our Building Futures initiative, which supports community groups working with under-18s.

“This is wonderful news for our members,” said Nicola Denham from the club.

“Our current vaulting table is old and well used and desperately needed updating. We provide recreational classes as well as having a competitive squad that competes regionally and nationally for Yorkshire.

“The new table will enable us to better prepare our gymnasts for future vaulting competitions.”

Building Futures has already donated £128,000 of a £1million giveaway to good causes across England, Scotland and Wales. The initiative aims to support community groups working with under-18s across three categories – education & arts, health and sport and has so far included a £4,000 donation in the West Yorkshire region.

Three initiatives will go on to win £100,000 each through a national online public vote. The winners will be named at a gala dinner for finalists in November.

In each sector – education & arts, health and sport – as well as the £100,000 first prize, there will be a £50,000 second prize and a £20,000 third prize, while a further 87 shortlisted projects will each receive £5,000.

Christopher Hull, managing director for West Yorkshire region, said: “Our Building Futures initiative is all about supporting the younger generations. We are delighted to support TSV Gymnastics and, who knows, maybe they could create the next Olympic gymnast?”

In addition to the Building Futures initiative, the successful Persimmon Homes Community Champion scheme continues where, every month, donations of up to £1,000 are awarded to two good causes within each of its 32 operating businesses.

Groups can apply for Community Champions funding by completing an online form at www.persimmonhomes.com/charity.”
