GYMNASTS tumbled their way to raising more than £1,000 for a charity which re-homes unwanted cats.

More than 50 members of the Hastings-based Acromax group took to the floor at Helenswood School’s sports centre to generate much-needed funds for the Bluebell Ridge cattery.

Members aged from six upwards balanced and pirouetted their way through 29 costumed musical pieces – much to the delight of a healthy audience.

The performance was the climax of another successful year for Acromax in which the dance group has combined learning new skills with raising money for a host of charities.

Some good causes among those to benefit include a project to build a school in Malagiri, Tibet.

At the end of the evening Andy and Ellie Poole, Daizee Baldwin and Jack Mallion were all given awards for their outstanding achievement in 2010.

A spokesman for Acromax said: “We would like to thank everyone who made the evening such a success.”

Acromax Gymnastics Club is non-competitive and its members learn gymnastics for fun, to keep fit and to give back to the community by giving displays for charitable causes.
