A further item of excellent financial news in recent weeks as Okehampton United Charities reaffirmed its’ support for Okehampton Gym, Trampoline and DMT Club with a superb grant of £15,000 toward new equipment.
Pictured with OUC Clerk Karen Percival, club head coach Vicki Pritchard gratefully received the cheque which is already earmarked for two competition-spec trampolines.
The new top-of-the-line trampolines will be used by the Flyers competitive trampoline squad and by the juniors’ section which can now be expanded to create a larger, four-bed session. A further sixty places can now be offered across the club’s sessions at Parklands Leisure Centre for those on the extensive club waiting list.
The initial grant application was for a smaller amount, aiming at buying one new and one second-hand trampoline; however, on reviewing the costings contained in the application, OUC generously made up the difference to buy the second trampoline new, in a gesture which was appreciated by the club members in their ‘thank you’ card to OUC.
The trampolines are due to arrive from Germany during the Easter Holidays.
