Burnham youngsters invited to join nationwide trampolining challenge

Youngsters in the Burnham-On-Sea area have this been invited to sign up to take part in a nationwide charity challenge that aims to get one million people bouncing across the country on the same day.

Children from the area are being encouraged to take part in the National Get Britain Bouncing Day on June 27th to help raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Trampolinist Laura Gallagher, pictured, who is a world and European medallist, is supporting and helping with the campaign.

Martin Schofield of Super Tramp, which is sponsoring the safe trampolining campaign, explained: "National Get Britain Bouncing Day is an awareness day to promote the benefits of bouncing. We need to get as many back garden bouncers involved as possible if we are going to meet our goal of getting one million bouncing."

"All people need to do is get their parents to register by visiting and then have a bounce during the day on June 27th. We are suggesting everyone who takes part gives a £1 donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust."

"Even if you don't have a garden trampoline at home you can still get involved, people can bounce on a space hopper or pogo stick or even just jump on the spot."

"Anyone taking part in National Get Britain Bouncing Day will be helping the Cystic Fibrosis Trust to raise awareness of the importance of improving processes for lung transplants, giving people a better chance of life."

Get Britain Bouncing is a campaign designed to promote the many benefits of trampolining.
