Nominated charity: MK Springers
MK Springers is an OfSTED registered gymnastics club, and registered charity, based in Kiln Fam, Milton Keynes. Established in 2004, and celebrating its 18th birthday this year, MK Springers offers recreational and competitive gymnastics from toddlers through to adults. With over 750 members, and counting, we are known as an integral part of the community in Milton Keynes.
MK Springers believe in the transformative power of gymnastics to support children, young people and their families to live healthy, strong, connected and fulfilled lives. Gymnastics is known to support both physical and mental health and wellbeing, develop resilience, confidence, self esteem and a host of skills, as well as enabling our members to develop lifelong friendships whilst having a whole host of fun!
As MK Springers is OfSTED registered families in receipt of Universal Credit, and other qualifying benefits, can claim 85% of their fees back from DWP. We know that even with this rebate many families are still unable to afford the 15%, £6/month or £72/year, to enable their children to attend our classes. We have therefore launched The Bridge Project to bridge this funding gap.
Your support in this Christmas Tree Festival will enable us to fund places for children and young people experiencing deprivation, poverty and social isolation, to enjoy all the benefits gymnastics, and MK Springers, can offer!

The inspiration for our tree is our #SpringersFamily: we all have a hand in making Springers what it is, we all support one another and offer a hand of friendship to everyone who comes through our doors. Our gymnasts, coaches and wider team have all drawn around their hands and decorated these handprints with something that means #SpringersFamily to them. Our tree topper is Springer the Kangaroo, our mascot.
