On the 29th of May 2017 a fire ripped through the Maroochy Beach Gymnastics club, just a few short weeks into construction of a major extension which had commenced after many years of planning. Luckily nobody was hurt in the fire but the building and all of our equipment were completely destroyed.
We have been overwhelmed by the immediate support from our members, the Sunshine Coast community and the wider gymnastics community and we would like to offer a fundraising facility through ASF which will enable donors to make tax deductible donations to assist us in the huge task we have ahead of us.
Major immediate fundraising requirements include securing a temporary training facility, replacing our lost equipment, and of course planning the rebuild of a new facility for the long term.
Our management committee is working hard to put together a plan to get the club back up and running as soon as possible.
Any donations would be very gratefully received.
