My niece Darci Tierney from Maryhill in Glasgow has been chosen to represent Team GB at the Word Age Finals for Tumbling (gymnastics) in Tokyo in December 2019. Darci is 13 years old and has been involved in Tumbling since she was 9 years old, she trains 6 nights per week and is 100% committed to the sport. Her achievements to date include one bronze and 2 silver medals in international competition in Portugal in 2018 and Scottish gold in 2019. She leaves for Japan on November 29th. This competition means the world to Darci and is entirely self funded so all funds raised will be used to cover the cost of flights and accommodation. We fully appreciate any donations no matter how large or small. As Darci is only 13 years old I shall be withdrawing donations directly into my own account and immediately transferring it by online banking to Darci's father Charlie Tierney, who is dealing directly with British Gymnastics association.
