Cheerleaders set to have a ‘cheertastic’ time in aid of local charities
A local cheerleading squad will be stepping out across the Humber Bridge to raise funds for their local hospital.
Members of Scunthorpe’s Tsunami Allstars have set their sights on raising money for The Health Tree Foundation (HTF), the official charity of the town’s hospital, as well as Lindsey Lodge Hospice.
They will be holding a sponsored walk across the bridge on July 23. Afterwards they will tuck into a picnic in the Humber Bridge Country Park, as well as take part in various games and activities.
Joint head of fundraising for Tsunami Allstars committee Terry Stevenson said: “We are a local group and wanted to give something back to the community. What better way of raising funds for the local hospital and hospice.
“Giving up a little bit of our time costs nothing. We are all looking forward to doing our bit for two great charities.”
HTF community champion Hayley Thompson said: “This sponsored walk is a great way of getting people active and raising money for two fantastic causes at the same time. It is an honour for these young people to choose us as one of their chosen charities.”
The Tsunami Allstars will be setting off from The Old Tile Works in Barton at 11.30am. If you would like to support the squads efforts please visit:
Lindsey Lodge Hospice fundraiser Selina Doyle said: “I’d like to say a massive thank you to the Tsunami Allstars for supporting us in this way. It’s so lovely to see young people doing their bit to raise funds for local charities in this way. We hope they have a fantastic, fun day.”
