Month: September 2011


As a fundraiser for the club we have arranged bag packing at Asda Bishopbriggs on Saturday 19th November. Time slots are for 2hrs and the slots available are 10.30-12.30, 12-30 – 14.30 and 14.30 – 16.30.

Asda’s requirements are that gymnasts must be 10 & above and adult helpers are required. For 10 to 14 year olds we need one adult to each child and 14+ years requires one adult per 2 children.

I would be grateful if you could advise your availability and prefered time slot and any adult helpers. Please email the club at or advise the coaches.

This is normally a really good fundraiser for the club so we would welcome as many gymnasts and helpers as possible.

Look forward to seeing you then.
