Inspiring Business by Sharing Success



A Sutton-in-Ashfield gymnastics academy has received a £2,000 donation from the Amazon fulfilment centre in Chesterfield.

Zoe McDonald Trustee for Sherwood Oaks Gymnastics Academy, added:

“Thank you to Stacey and the team at Amazon for this donation. Our members have really missed visiting our club over the last year and this donation will help us provide an even better training experience now that everyone can safely return.”

Sherwood Oaks Gymnastics Academy received the donation as part of Amazon’s programme to support the communities around its operating locations across the UK.
