Funds Raised for a Very Special Charity

Presentation of cheque for Children’s Cancer Unit Charity

We were delighted that President of Salto Gymnastics, Dame Mary Peters, came along to help us present a cheque to the Children’s Cancer Unit Charity in January. £1,500 was raised in support of the local charity in memory of Charlie Craig.

Amanda McMaster, centre manager, explains: “We were delighted to be able to present a cheque to the Children’s Cancer Unit and this was only made possible by the generosity and help of our club members and staff. Their contribution towards the Christmas hampers and the raising of significant funds was overwhelming. We chose to donate to the Children’s Cancer Unit because Charlie was a former member of Salto and his sister Nancy still attends our gym.”

Charlie’s mother Cliodhna and sister Nancy Craig were on hand to help present the cheque to Anna McDonald from the Children’s Cancer Unit Charity.

Thanks to all the members of our team who created the beautifully prepared hampers.
