Smartie Tube Challenge!

By January 24, 2020 No Comments

It’s time for our annual ‘Smartie Tube Challenge’ which helps raise money for our club & for  ‘The North West Air Ambulance’.

The North West Air Ambulance takes advanced healthcare to the scene; reaching, treating and transferring patients to definitive care as quickly as possible and working collaboratively with our partners to ensure they are transferred to the best treatment centre thus improving chances of survival and reducing the risk of long term injury.

Just as many critically injured patients would not survive without the service, your North West Air Ambulance Charity would not be here without you. The service is funded by the generosity of the public through donations, fundraising activity, lottery membership and through our network of retail outlets, who provide vital charitable funding to keep our service flying.

The City of Lancaster Gymnastics is a purpose-built performance centre dedicated to giving everyone the opportunity to enjoy and shine in gymnastics, trampolining, tumbling and more. It runs from two locations the ‘University of Cumbria Sports Centre’ and the facility based on the Lancaster Leisure Park. It is a not-for-profit gymnastics club run by an amazing group of coaches, officials and young volunteers. Gymnastics provides a great opportunity for children to try a new sport, make friends and have fun in safe hands.

The challenge we have set is for all gymnasts to try and fill a Smartie tube with 20p pieces.

Once the Smartie tube has been filled (or as full as you can get it within the time scale!) and returned we will count the contents and divide the money between the North West Air Ambulance and the City of Lancaster Gymnastics Club.

Please can you label your smartie tube with two pieces of information so we can enter it into a prize draw. The winner will be presented with a family ticket for the Vue cinema in Lancaster including a bag of goodies for your visit.

  1. Your child’s name
  2.  Your contact telephone number

Please can all tubes be returned no later than Sunday 8th March 2020. The draw will take place on Sunday 15th March 2020.
