Raising funds for Ella Hjertquist 2015 NZ Team trip to Melbourne in May for Rhythmic Gymnastics
Greater Green Island Rhythmic Gymnastics Club
2015 NZ Team to Melbourne, Australian Nationals
Ella qualified as the only Otago representative for the NZ Rhythmic Team going to Australian Nationals 2015.
Really hoping to get a bit of support with our fundraising to get Ella (and mum as one of the team chaperones) over to Melbourne in May.
Ella first represented NZ in Sydney in 2012. She is ready again with more confidence and skills and is training very hard in order to give her very best in Melbourne.
Ella also competes in aerobics, does HipHop and has also spent a few years in ballet. She coaches in both rhythmic gymnastics and aerobics.... and somehow she also finds time to go to school!!!
She has been making paper posies as one fundraiser for her trip with what little free time she does have so huge gratitude to anyone who donates towards this trip. A huge privilege...and Ella has the honour of competing on her 15th birthday!
The fundraising will be used to cover the costs of the trip to Melbourne for Ella and myself as a team chaperone. This includes travel, accommodation, food, competition costs, NZ Team kit/uniform and contribution to the travelling judges and coaches costs.
Sarah and Ella
I am Ella's mum, Sarah.
As a single parent only working part-time so I can be there for my children, te fundraising becomes a necessary part of ensuring Ella's participation on a tour like this.
Supporting my children's passions and interests is why I am here!
I have also been making lots of different things to raise funds as well as helped at a couple of events to try and raise money.
Really appreciate any support :)
