Caring for the community
Over the last few years Beaconsfield Freemasons have been holding a series of events for local carers, both young and old
Their latest initiative was a gymnastics party for 10-12 year old carers at Bracknell Gymnastics Club.
After meeting their three coaches for the day – Sacha Tomkins, James Langley and Charlie Dorrington, who took a break from training to represent Great Britain in the European Team Gymnastics in Slovenia – the 25 young carers did a bit of stretching before getting down to some real gym work.
As can be seen from the photograph, the youngsters committed themselves fully into the programme that was devised for them, under the watchful eyes of their coaches.
All this built up a healthy appetite ready for lunch in the restaurant, and a good day was had by all.
Special thanks go to Peter Tranckle, Manager of Bracknell Gymnastics for his help and assistance in the organisation and to the members of the Beaconsfield Committee who attended: Tony Dyckes, Graham Thorn, Rob Knock, Barry Sparks and Steve Matthews.
