Unity All­stars Gold, a cheer­lead­ers’ group for young­sters with spe­cial needs, has won £1,000 in the com­mu­nity com­pe­ti­tion run by Mick Ge­orge Ltd.

There were a thou­sand rea­sons to cheer for a spe­cial needs team as they were given a cheque from Mick Ge­orge after win­ning the Skip of Gold. For the past three months, Mick Ge­orge has been run­ning its ‘Skip of Gold’ com­pe­ti­tion in part­ner­ship with the Peter­bor­ough Tele­graph, pro­vid­ing sports clubs and com­mu­nity groups with the chanceto win £1,000. The win­ner came from the sports cat­e­gory, in the form of Unity All­stars Gold who were a clear cut win­ner.

Unity All­stars Gold is Eng­land’s first ever com­pet­i­tive Spe­cial Needs Cheer­lead­ing Squad for young peo­ple with a range of learn­ing or phys­i­cal dis­abil­i­ties in Peter­bor­ough.

Amee Quy, as­sis­tant direc­tor at the club said: ‘’To see the faces of these young peo­ple achieve and build their self­con­fi­dence is just in­cred­i­ble. Sup­port­ing these ath­letes comes at a cost in terms of hall hire, equip­ment, and trans­port to the com­pe­ti­tions amongst other things.

“By win­ning the ‘Skip of Gold ’com­pe­ti­tion, meansthat every­one that has voted have sup­ported our club in the aim to raise funds to at­tend a na­tional com­pe­ti­tion next year in Lon­don.

“We are truly grate­ful and on be­half of the coach­ing staff, par­ents and most im­por­tantly the young tal­ented ath­letes in the squad …a big BIG Thank You to Mick Ge­orge Ltd!’’

Jon Stump, Fi­nance Direc­tor at Mick Ge­orge said the re­sponse to the com­pe­ti­tion had been ‘fan­tas­tic.’
