The Guernsey Specials Gym Club are looking for past members and volunteers to help celebrate 20 years of the club by hosting an anniversary dinner and ball on 18th October at St Pierre Park. The anniversary dinner is being organised in conjunction with their main sponsors Trust Corporation.
The club was originally formed in 1994, and seeks to help children with special needs to take part in gymnastics with the help of trained coaches and volunteers. Two gym classes are currently being held every week in term time for children in two different age groups, 4-7 years and 7 years upwards.
The Guernsey Specials Gymnastics club are inviting previous gymnasts, members and sponsors of the club to celebrate their success with live music from the Elastic Band. Anyone from the general public is also very welcome to attend the charity event.
Other entertainment on the night will include a raffle and a magician as well as a three course meal, all staged within St Pierre Park Hotel.
Hannah Pearce, Chairman of the Club, said: “We have many plans for the children in this special year.
“Helping our children express themselves is one of our core goals and achievements. This Ball will be an excellent opportunity for everyone involved in the charity to get together and celebrate the past 20 years.”
Alison Hamperl , charity committee organiser at Trust Corporation said: “It has been great to support the charity in their 20th anniversary year and we are looking forward to attending the ball and meeting some of the wonderful volunteers and past members.”
The tickets cost £50 individually or £500 for a table of ten and are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Special rates are available for past members.
