As part of £50,000 Government funding from Sportscotland, CETC have received a Grant of £100 from Scottish Gymnastics, to provide free period products for its members.
Coaches will carry 'SOS' bags containing some period products, as well as a few hair bobbles & plasters, which are accessible to all members at classes.
Thank you to all Club coaches for supporting this initiative, & to Sportscotland & Scottish Gymnastics for providing the Grant.

Well Done at Worlds Ciara!
