Cheerleaders join token race
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.
