HUNTINGDON Town Partnership has donated £500 towards Huntingdon Gym Club’s £100,000 appeal, which will fund the building of a new extension.

Angela Owen Smith, chairman of the town partnership, presented the cheque to the club's head coach Paul Hall.

Mr Hall has called the extension his “big mission for 2013”.

Katy Sismore, from the town partnership, said: “The achievements of Huntingdon Gymnastics Club in raising the profile of Huntingdon on the world stage are many and should be celebrated.”
