Birch Green Care Home makes dazzling donation

Birch Green Care Home have donated £250 to help six gymnasts compete in an international competition.

 

They presented a cheque to the Dazzlers Gymnastics Club and to say thank you, the youngsters performed a special routine at the home to celebrate Birch Green being praised by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and awarded a ‘good’ rating in a recent inspection.

 

The club, which is also based in Skelmersdale is run as a Community Interest Company, aiming to keep costs for the gymnasts low so that money can be re-invested in to running the club for the benefit of its members.

 

The Dazzlers, whose members range from age eight to 13, and are raising funds to meet the travel costs required to attend the IAICG World Gymnastics Championships in Florida in June 2018.

 

Vicky Sudworth, General Manager at Birch Green Care Home and mum of Sophie Sudworth, a member of the Dazzlers Gymnastics Club said: “Everyone at the home really enjoyed the

performance and most of the residents were in awe when they saw how skilled the girls are. It’s important that we support other organisations where possible and this was a great opportunity for residents to be able to give something back to their community.

 

“As a mum whose daughter is part of the Dazzlers Gymnastics Club, I can also comment on how much this means to the gymnasts. The club doesn’t have a permanent home and has very little dedicated equipment but with enthusiastic coaching and fantastic team spirit, the club certainly holds its own when competing – even against much larger clubs with far superior equipment.”
