ILKLEY Wharfedale Rotarian Judith Dickinson was very impressed by the display put on by Ilkley Gym Club members when she visited them to present a cheque for £200 to assist with their participation in the World Gymnaestrada event in Austria in July.

A 15 strong team of gymnasts will be taking part for the first time, performing multiple times as a club, and also as part of Team GB at the event.

The Gym Club are still raising funds for the event and Coach Nicola Robinson expressed her gratitude for the contribution. Rotarian Judith, who heads the Rotary Club Youth committee, said “We are pleased to be able to provide this support, it is very important for young people to be able to take part in events such as this, and we wish them well in their efforts”.
