SOUTH ESSEX’S gymnastics stars made their annual trip to Basildon Hospital to hand out some presents to children over Christmas.

International competitors Reiss Beckford, Brinn Bevan and Jay Thompson were among those who joined South Basildon & East Thurrock MP Stephen Metcalfe on the wards during the festivities.

And the day after their trip to Belfast for the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year awards show, 2015 world pommel champion Max Whitlock and SEGC’s director of coaching Scott Hann were also happy to go and spread some cheer.

The club has made the annual trip to the hospital in recent years (here is last year’s report) and hopes to continue the tradition for many more to come.
