Two Trustees of Recoil Trampoline Club, in Warley, Brentwood undertook a challenge to raise funds for the local charity Recoil Trampoline Club and awareness of the benefits of trampolining for the disabled.
In April, Anita Keen and Tricia Sharpe and a relay team of three ladies drove a Tuk Tuk from Lands End to John O’Groats and raised over £6,500 to pay for a new automatic door entry system on their facility, The Trampoline & Activity Centre in Brentwood.
Recoil Trampoline Club specialise in offering sessions for children and adults with any disability as well as every level of ability from beginner to advanced.
The money they have raised has been used to install a new automatic door operating system at the Trampoline and Activity Centre to ensure that the members and users with disabilities have easier access to the centre.
Since the completion of the epic journey from Lands End to John O’Groats, Tricia was invited to give a presentation about the Club and the Tuk Tuk Challenge to members of the Billericay Round Table.
Founder of Recoil Trampoline Club and the Trampoline & Activity Centre, Tricia said:
"I was thrilled that the Round table then agreed to donate a fantastic £10,000 to the Club so that they can purchase a complete new set of safety mats for their 9 floor level trampolines, some new trampoline beds, three new laptops, plus other specialised equipment. Even in tough times it shows how wonderfully generous people can be. When Billericay Round Table first told me of their donation I was shocked. We are extremely grateful as their donation means a great deal to us, it will help the Club and the Centre immeasurably.”
The Billericay Round Table supports local good causes.
