Ballincollig Gymnastics, Co. Cork

Every time you shop at Tesco you’re doing your part to help thousands of local causes across the country. Since starting our Community Fund in 2014, the Tesco Community Fund has been able to donate nearly €2million to over 5,000 of these deserving causes, thanks to you.

The Ballincollig Gymnastics Club is one of the Cork causes that has benefited from the Tesco Community Fund. The club has been working for seven years to raise funds to buy a new floor for the gym. Thanks to the well-timed intervention from the Tesco Community Fund, the club has ordered a 12 metre x 12 metre fully sprung floor from the UK. This floor is ideal for training and performances such as the club’s annual summer show in which even the three year olds play their part.

Sandra O’Leary, Head Coach and Founder Ballincollig Gymnastics said: We’re absolutely delighted to have been involved with the Tesco Community Fund. The donation means a lot, and it has allowed us to buy the new floor that we’ve been saving years for. The new floor will be used by every one of the few hundred members in the club.”
