Beaconsfield Young Carers at the Gym

Following the successful and most enjoyable Gymnastics party given to a group 10-12 year old Young Carers at Bracknell Gymnastics Club in April 2016, Beaconsfield Freemasons recently took another group back to the Club for a day off from their caring duties.

On arrival the youngsters were introduced to their coaches for the day: James, Sacha and Ed. After a gentle warm up the coaches took the youngsters through a full range of gymnastic events, which they all joined in with great enthusiasm. Sadly, before they knew it the young carers found their time in the gym had slipped by and it was off to the restaurant for lunch and an extra special treat of Easter Eggs, presented by Barry Sparks, one of the committee members from the Beaconsfield Masonic Committee.

Maxine Lansdell a Young Carers Support Worker said: ''We had the best time ever! Such a fabulous afternoon filled with fun, laughter, delicious food AND Easter Eggs! What more could our Young Carers want? Our sincere thanks go to Beaconsfield Freemasons, especially Steve, Barry, Tony, Sean, Andy and Rob for looking after us so well. We really do appreciate their kindness and generosity shown to our youngsters. The children were so happy and 'full of beans & chocolate' on the journey home.''

Barry added: "This trip was to enable these very hard working youngsters to have some much needed time off from the daily routine of looking after family members. Special thanks go to Peter Tranckle, Manager of Bracknell Gymnastics, for his help and assistance in the organisation of this great day out. Beaconsfield Freemasonry in the Community's next outing for the Young Carers is in June, when we are going to Road Farm where the youngsters will be able to try their hand at Clay Pigeon Shooting."
