Showman is star attraction

A local gymnastics school caused a commotion in Bridgnorth when its Greatest Showman fundraiser had people queuing down the street. Edge Gymnastics, which runs classes at Castlefields Primary and Much Wenlock Leisure Centre, put on a special showing of the blockbuster musical at the town’s Majestic Cinema to raise money for charity – and Edge Gymnastics’ Kelly Woodcock says they raised over £600 for the cause, Stacey’s Trust.

Stacey’s Trust is a Bridgnorth-based support group aimed at 11 to 18 year olds who have lost someone special in their lives through bereavement. Kelly says, “The event was absolutely incredible… people were queueing right to the end of Whitburn Street. Big thanks to James Frizzell of Majestic for enabling this event to take part at such short notice.”
Edge Gymnastics is working on its circus-themed entry to the Bridgnorth Carnival and is asking for donations of red, white, black or silver paint, mannequins, a rocking horse and lots of MDF! Email if you can help out.
