Cheer­lead­ers join to­ken race

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - BIG NIGHT OUT - By Ruth War­ran­der

THESE tal­ented young­sters are hop­ing for an ex­plo­sion of to­kens to help them bag a wind­fall in the Evening Ex­press Com­mu­ni­tEE Chest give­away.

The Blue Dy­na­mite Cheer­lead­ers from Cove and Torry are jump­ing with joy at the prospect of scoop­ing cash for their group.

And Fiona Leitch, Dy­na­mite head coach, said to­day the group had al­ready landed lucky in each of the last three give­aways.

She added: “It makes a huge dif­fer­ence.

“We put the money to­wards pom­poms, cheer­lead­ing out­fits and help­ing get the girls to com­pe­ti­tions across the coun­try.”

The Dy­na­mites cur­rently have more than 30 girls, aged be­tween five and 18, tak­ing part in their weekly classes in Torry and Cove.

And Fiona said the girls were ready to grab as many to­kens as they pos­si­bly can. She added: “The Com­mu­ni­tEE Chest is fan­tas­tic and all the girls have their fam­i­lies and friends col­lect­ing as many to­kens as pos­si­ble.”

To be in with a chance of get­ting your hands on the cash, par­tic­i­pat­ing groups must col­lect the to­kens printed ev­ery Mon­day and Wed­nes­day with two spe­cial bonus to­kens on Satur­days un­til June.

Twelve lucky non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions will share in the booty.

Four lucky kids’ groups of up to 30 mem­bers will pick up £500; four with be­tween 31 and 60 mem­bers will bag £750 and two groups with 61 or more mem­bers walk away with £1,000 each.

And for the first time this year, the Evening Ex­press has opened up a spe­cial cat­e­gory for two adult groups to col­lect a £500 wind­fall.
