YOUNG gymnasts from Mere have helped raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Members of Gymbuds, the new gymnastics club based at Mere School, demonstrated their skills at Mere May Fayre while parent helpers offered face and nail painting, and hair braiding.

The team raised £86, which went towards the grand total of £3,600.

Gymbuds also took part in the Harmony Festival at The Larmer Tree and they are set to perform at Gillingham and Mere primary school summer fairs on June 28 and July 5.

People are invited along to find out more about joining the club.
