Dimax Gymnastics during the pandemic have lost their main training venue due to regulations.
This has resulted in a loss of income which has in return impacted on the savings of the organisation but also 50% loss of their squad gymnasts.
They applied for the Be Actif Wales Fund to ‘Protect’ the organisation. The organisation received £4,350 which helped them to meet financial obligations such as equipment leasing costs, building rent during the lockdown and pay utility bills when income was generation was not possible.
The fund has helped ease the worries of the financial difficulties the club is under with the difficulty in managing the return to play.
If your club would like to apply for funding and require support, please get in touch with the Actif Communities Team or by visiting the COVID-19 support - Be Actif Wales Fund webpage.
Following Welsh Government’s announcement to introduce a two-week ‘firebreak’ lockdown in response to the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in Wales, ALL Actif Leisure centres & outdoors sports facilities will close from 4pm* on Friday 23 October, reopening on Monday 9 November
