URBAN School of Gymnastics in Warrington have now grown to a position where support is being provided to worthy causes.

The club recently spent a weekend raising funds, hosting a display where children performed routines dedicated to the RSPCA and then running a 5k pretty mudder challenge at Victoria Park.

They hauled in £780 for Cancer Research and £360 for the RSPCA.

Urban School of Gymnastics opened one month before the first coronavirus pandemic lockdown.

Privately run by Christina Duckers and Niall Rowe, they have not received any funding or financial help throughout the two years that the centre has been open.

"So we are very grateful to now be in a position where we can help others," said Christine.

"We have an amazing team of coaches, parents and children within the club and run a fun friendly gymnastics and trampolining centre for all ages and abilities."

Success has been enjoyed in gymnastics and trampolining since opening, including two gymnasts (Hattie Hartley, Isabelle Khan) and one trampolinist (Caelan Haydon) representing the north west at national finals, seven trampolinists selected to represent the region at regional finals, eight gymnasts passing regional grade 4, three national graded gymnasts placing in the top seven in the north west, Matilda Geraghty being crowned floor and vault champion for the region.

Christine concluded: "We have 350 recreational gymnasts who have all made a huge improvement, passing through to our more advanced classes within the club.

"We are so proud to offer a friendly club where every child matters."
