Uckfield Rotary Club has presented a cheque for £800 to help three young trampolinists progress in their sport.
Poppy Bissett, Millie Dadswell, and Rosie Sullivan who became Under 14 Intermediate National Champions in March.
They train with the Sky High Club at the Fun Abounds Trampoline Centre on the Bellbrook Estate and were nominated to receive the award by coach Stella Jackson.
The money was given to Uckfield Rotary Club by an anonymous donor who asked for it to be used to support the endeavours of a local young person who demonstrated outstanding sporting skills and achievements.
Rotary vice-president Peter Primett, who was accompanied by other club members, said he was delighted to present the cheque at the Sky High Club and to meet the girls who will benefit from the award.
Hannah Sullivan, mother of Rosie, said the money was much appreciated and would be a big help. They were hoping to be able to put it towards competition travel expenses.
“The last competition final, for example, was in Belfast and we had to fund the girls and ourselves to get to Belfast and stay there overnight so they could take part.”
Stella said competitions took place all over the country and abroad so the donation meant a lot to club members.
She chose Poppy, Millie, and Rosie to receive the money because all three were dedicated to the sport, did very well to become Under 14 Intermediate National Champions, and showed great promise for the future.
