The house builder is helping a squad of young gymnasts to follow their Olympic dreams.

  • Young Nottinghamshire gymnasts are getting ready to tumble, spring and leap with joy thanks to a generous donation from Taylor Wimpey, in association with its developments in Nottinghamshire.

    The house builder has given £500 to Eastwood-based Phoenixwood Gymnastics Club. It is being used to purchase a brand new competition-standard beam for club members to use.

    With just one beam currently available to the club's 50-plus members, the new apparatus is set to be a welcome addition for the youngsters aspiring to reach the heights of Team GB's successful gymnasts at London 2012.

    Head coach Dean Bartram says: "Since the huge success of the London Olympics, our membership has increased by over 25 gymnasts and Taylor Wimpey's timely donation will allow us to meet all our members' needs.

    "The new beam will give our younger gymnasts the opportunity to increase their confidence on the apparatus from an early age, while all our members will have more chances to develop competition routines.

    "We truly appreciate Taylor Wimpey's support and commitment to improving the health and fitness of children in this community."

    Dominic Harman, managing director for Taylor Wimpey in Nottinghamshire, says: "We were delighted to help Phoenixwood Gymnastics Club maintain the momentum their sport has been building since the Olympics.

    "Our donation will give more local children even more opportunities to enjoy the benefits of practising their routines on top-class equipment.

    "Hopefully, this will encourage even more youngsters to take up gymnastics and then lead to many future successes for Phoenixwood Gymnastics Club."

    Taylor Wimpey has a selection of developments of properties for sale in Nottinghamshire, including Ruddington Place in Wilford, Lime Tree Gardens in Mapperley and Kings Acre in Clipstone.
