Charity Champions Above & Beyond is very excited to announce that Claudia Fragapane, Olympian, Commonwealth champion and former Strictly Come Dancing star, is our new celebrity champion! Claudia is partnering with us to help raise awareness about the difference your donations make to our hospitals. Thank you Claudia! Here’s what Claudia had to say about working with Above & Beyond: “It means a lot to me to work with a charity that supports a cause in my hometown of Bristol, where I live and train. As a gymnast, I know how important it is to stay fit and healthy – a small injury could mean the end of my career – and I wanted to help raise awareness about the need to support our city centre hospitals.” Claudia is a British artistic gymnast who trains at Bristol Hawks Gymnastics in Easton. She is only 20 but has already won four golds at the 2014 Commonwealth Games for Team, Artistic Gymnastics, Vault and Floor events as well a gold for Vault in the 2015 British Championships, four golds in the 2016 English Championships for Artistic Gymnastics, Uneven Bars, Balance Beam and Floor and represented Great Britain in the 2016 Rio Olympic games. She most recently won a superb bronze at the World Gymnastics Championships 2017 in Montreal. Keep your eye out for more details about upcoming events that Claudia will be helping us with!
