CHEERLEADERS were jumping for joy after their training facilities were boosted by a four-figure charity grant ahead of an international contest.
Trailblazers Allstars Cheerleading Academy — whose members fly out to America for the Cheerleading World Championships this weekend — was given £1,060 to spend on a new six-metre Air Floor and a Booster Block by members of the Freemasons from the Province of Yorkshire West Riding.
Members of the Wickersley-based academy will be Florida on Sunday to compete in the Level 6 competition for those aged 17 and over and are the only UK team to qualify.
Allstar Phoebe Shore (17), who will be competing with sister Imogen (19). said: “I am so excited to be going to the World Championships in Florida as it is a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform at Walt Disney World.
“We have been together since Level 1 and we are all so close and know each other very well, so it’s fantastic to share this amazing opportunity with them.”
