#GetIntoSummer with Youth Borders

P.H.D FUNdamentals has been successful in securing funding from Youth Borders to deliver funded spaces to provide targeted free spaces for children experiencing disadvantage through working with local partner organisations; and additional sessional staff time to manage Covid-19 mitigation. P.H.D FUNdamentals will continue to work with Peeblesshire Youth Trust and Borders Additiona Needs Group (BANG) to offer these opportunities to local children through our summer programme. 


Crowdfunder Success

We are delighted to share with you that we have raised £2,728 through our Crowdfunder page. COVID-19 and lockdown have had large scale financial implications for the club. The inability to generate income and increased running costs; enhanced cleaning products, reduced numbers in our sessions and no fundraising, mean the club is now seeking financial support to help reach its charitable objectives in 2021 and reinforce the long-term future of the club. 

As a charity, all income generated goes towards overheads including; hall hire, coaching fees, coach and volunteer education, maintenance of equipment, insurance and funded spaces.

What are we fundraising for?

To increase our reach further into the community allowing us to provide more funded spaces to children and young people who face barriers to participation.

To provide and expand our funded spaces we also need to ensure the following aspects of the club continue to be funded:

  • New coach education costs for new coaches, current coaches and volunteers, developing the skills of youngsters in our community with our Young Coach programme and furthering the development of our team. 
  • Renewal of First Aid and Child Protection courses for coaches and volunteers.
  • Support gymnasts return both physically and mentally into sessions
  • Support gymnasts families whose circumstances have changed to continue to attend sessions and feel part of the club family.
  • Equipment maintenance and upgrades (as some equipment has been untouched in over a year).
  • Replenish reserves for future projects or any further restrictions.


Your support will help ensure that P.H.D FUNdamentals can continue to provide opportunities for our community and our members, both current and future.


We would like to say a HUGE thank you to Peebles Auction House for their generous donation of £1,000. We are extremely grateful for their support and truly appreciate the donation.
