Coventry ParaCheer group's trip to Orlando boosted by prize win in weekly competition draw

AN INTERNATIONAL ParaCheer group which trains in Coventry has received a cash reward after winning a weekly funding competition.

ParaCheer International is a small charity dedicated to growing the new ParaCheer divisions of cheerleading, which enable teams of disabled and non-disabled athletes to perform high-action routines together.

The charity entered the Galaxy Hot Chocolate fund and received £300 to help fund an upcoming trip to America – where the group will compete in the Cheerleading World Championships.

ParaCheer International will support Team England ParaCheer in Orlando, Florida, to train two teams of athletes to compete in the first ever world championships.

Trustee Jayme Rodgers said: “This donation from the hot chocolate fund will help to support our teams on tour in America, taking Team England ParaCheer to the world stage.

“We’re incredibly proud to be leading the way with this new cheerleading division and look forward to seeing ParaCheer develop as a sport.”

Michelle Frost, spokeswoman for the grant giving competition, said: “We know smaller charities and community groups across the UK are struggling to make ends meet despite the effort of a huge number of warm-hearted volunteers.

“More than two-thirds of charities report more than half of their funds come from fundraising.

“We hope to provide these charities with a helping hand and hopefully inspire more people to get involved.”
