Members of Buckley Girls Gymnastics Club who have raised nearly £1,500 in aid of Nightingale House Hospice.

A group of gymnasts from Buckley Girls Gymnastics Club has raised £1457.87 for Nightingale House Hospice by taking part in a sponsored Tumbleathon in memory of their former coach.

The girls were sponsored to do flips and rolls in order to raise the much needed funds for the hospice.

Laura Parry Community and Events Fundraiser at Nightingale House Hospice said: “What a great fun way of raising money for the Hospice! Well-done to everybody who took part and thank you for choosing to support your local charity, Nightingale House.”

In a further act of kindness for the hospice four members of class four at Ysgol Hooson recently challenged themselves to a sponsored silence raising £210, which was presented to Keith Cherrott Manager at Nightingale House Hospice’s Charity Shop in Rhos.

Ela Thomas, Ffion Ellis, Anais Johnson and Chloe Smormbrg hand over a cheque for £210 raised by their sponsored silence.

Samantha Lee, an employee the hospice said: said: “On behalf of the Hospice I would like to thank all of the girls for choosing to take part in a sponsored silence to help raise money for the Hospice. I’m sure this was not an easy challenge and so well done to you all for completing it!”

The generous donations will go towards raising the £2.46 million it costs to run the hospice each year, only 19% of which comes from government sources, the rest is raised through donations from the community.
