A group of eleven gymnasts from the Ladywell Gymnastics Club in Bellingham have been invited to compete in the Dubai International Gymnastics Competition in April. The majority of these girls are local to Lewisham (Hither Green, Catford, Sydenham, Honor Oak, Forest Hill, Ladywell, and Brockley).
This is an incredible opportunity to compete against gymnasts from around the world. The girls, alongside their dedicated coaches, train for over 18 hours a week to perfect their routines and work towards their goal.
The Ladywell Gymnastics Club has provided gymnastics classes for children for many years and serves the local community, especially the children in the Lewisham borough.
They are raising money to help the team get to Dubai, which involves travel, accommodation and competition costs and any support from the local community would be gratefully received. Please visit the Crowdfunder page and pledge your support.
