A special message from Rebound’s
My name is Freya and I am 10 years
old and a gymnast at Rebound GC.
In the summer of 2014 I watched a
film called ‘The Fault in Our Stars’. In this
film the main character suffered with lung cancer and constantly
had to carry an oxygen tank around with her 24/7. I know this
was only a film but it made me think how lucky I am. I am
a very fit, healthy and energetic 10-year old and I take part
in lots of sporting activities. The film made me realise that
not all of us can take part in such activities as I do and
having never met anyone who was or is in a position I was
shocked that people have no choice with their illnesses and
how brave they are.
It made me feel that I wanted to help
in some way and do something that would make people look and
understand why I want to help. So I have chosen to shave my
hair off. My plan is to raise money to give to the ‘Children
with cancer Charity’ and to donate my hair
to ‘The Little Princess Charity’
in the hope that someone will get some happiness.
I plan to do this event on Wednesday
4th March 2015. Thank you for supporting me, even
the smallest donation will help.
Thank you……Freya X

- Fantastic News - two
of our gymnasts came away with medals at the Regional Novice
competition held on Sunday 23 March. The gymnasts competing
in the Advanced category had to compete a week early due
to the exceptionally high number of entrants this year.
Rebound had 5 gymnasts competing - Stephanie Campbell in
the 13+ group who came 6th overall and a 2nd place on beam.
In the 10-12 year old category Lily Ivory came 9th, Izzy
Willman came 6th (2nd on bars), Emma Gahan got a bronze
medal (1st on bars and 2nd on vault) and Abbie Brown who
came 2nd overall with a 1st placement on beam and vault

- CONGRATULATIONS to
Abbie Brown and Marianne Mackiewicz on getting gold and
becoming Regional Novice Champions!! Also to Maeve Ollerenshaw
on getting a silver medal and to Lily Ivory and Charlotte
Winsper for getting bronze medals. The Club took part in
the Regional Novice Competition held at
North Solihull Sports Centre on Saturday 13 April
and had gymnasts entered in different levels (Beginner,
Intermediate and Advanced) and age groups. Marianne took
gold in the 8/9 Beginner category and Abbie took her gold
in the 10/12 Advanced category. This is great achievement
for the club as in a lot of cases our gymnasts train half
the number of hours of other competitiors. We are very proud
of all the girls who competed including Stephanie Campbell
(who sadly missed out on a medal after 2 falls on beam -
which never normally happens), Izzy Willman, Rachel Bennett,
Emma Gahan and Kelsie Sheppard. All the girls performed
really well on the day and had showed off some great floor
routines. A very big thankyou to all the coaches,
especially Michele and Alison who entered gymnasts for the
first time (and Marianne got a gold medal at her first regional
competition), also to Ellie (who taught the floor routines
to medal winners Abbie, Lily, Charlotte and Maeve) and to
Alice (who made sure the girls were all registered on time
and recorded routines) not forgetting Jess and Becki for
helping out on the competition floor. See photos
