Holly Elizabeth Robinson
How it all began
Holly, who has been trampolining since the age of six is now jumping for joy after winning her first gold medal for England. Holly is a self funded athlete and the more she progresses the more expensive it becomes for her and the family. Holly trains four times a week at Consett Leisure Centre, with Belle Vue Trampoline Club and is coached by Gemma Proud and Jonelle Pye.
Making a difference
Holly competes all over the UK and Europe where she performs at an Elite level. Her family applied to the Foundation for funding to contribute to the significant costs of travel, entry fees and accommodation for her many trampolining competitions.
Holly, a year ten pupil at St Bede’s in Lanchester, recently competed at the Loule Cup in Portugal. She qualified in first place out of 39 competitors after the qualifying rounds to go in to the top eight final. After a nerve racking 24 hours, her commitment and passion to her sport paid off and she was able to maintain first place in the final.
With thanks to you
“Holly would like to send her thanks to the donors and the Foundation as their help has enabled her to continue to compete at an elite level and compete in international competitions. Without their support this would not of been possible”
