Please help Henry Godfrey and Keira Follett (Acrobatic Gymnastics 11-16 Mixed Pair) represent Great Britain in Mexico for the 2019 Acrobatic Gymnastics Pan American Cup
Local school children, Henry age 14 from Twickenham and Keira age 11 from Hillingdon have been selected to represent Great Britain at the 2019 Acrobatic Gymnastics Pan American Club Cup in Mexico.
These dedicated acrobatic gymnasts train up to 24 hours a week over 6 days, before and after school at Heathrow Gymnastics Club in Hounslow.
This is a huge achievement which is the culmination of all the hard work and commitment these children have put into the sport over recent years, resulting in receiving the highest honour of reaching the Great Britain Squad and representing their country at an international competition.
Henry and Keira have only been together as a mixed pair for a year and have already this season become gold medallists at international competitions in Portugal and Spain. On the back of this they were selected to trial for GB and then went on to received a bronze medal at The British National Championships in July.
Unfortunately there is no funding from British Gymnastics for acrobatic gymnasts competing at age group level. All competitions overseas and within the UK are self-funded.
In order for Henry and Keira to continue their journey at such an elite level competing against the best gymnasts across the globe we are fundraising to help cover the essential expenses (of leotards, travel, accommodation, meals, insurance and the full Great Britain kit).
We hope with your help we can make their dreams come true and they can take part in this competition and wear the flag with pride and compete as part of Team GB
Following on from this, Henry and Keira both have hopes of being selected to represent Great Britain at the Acrobatic World Championships in Switzerland in the Spring of which trials begin early 2020.
We are extremely grateful for any contributions received and thank you for your very kind support in helping making our children’s dreams become a reality ❤️
