Developer Raises The Bar To Support Colburn Cheerleading Team

Housebuilder Linden Homes West Yorkshire are flying high with their latest community support of a local cheerleading club!

As well as being a happy customer, having purchased a home at Linden’s Marne Grange development in Colburn – Mandy Foreman is one of the directors of Lazer Cheer.

Mandy and her daughter Chelsea took over the running of Lazer Cheer last year, and have some new and creative ideas to make sure the sky is the limit for the club!

Lazer Cheer has been running successfully for 10 years, with numerous trophies, competition success and other credits to its name. They currently train out of Colburn Leisure centre and share the gym with a local gymnastics club.

Long term, the club would love to have their own gym and to be able to offer more classes for their ever-increasing programme. They would like to be able to start a special abilities cheer group and also to be able to offer free boys only tumble sessions to try and encourage more males to become involved in the sport.

Mandy said: “We currently have 120 competitive athletes and over 100 recreational athletes aged from 18 months to 48 years. Cheerleading has grown so much in the UK over the past few years following the success of Team England winning the ICU Worlds finals.”

The donation from Linden Homes West Yorkshire has been met with huge excitement, Mandy said: “We have a fantastic fundraising committee made up of parents who have previously fundraised for new uniforms, equipment and contributed towards trips for our athletes competing in the Cheerleading Worlds Finals in Florida. We would be putting the Linden Homes donation towards the cost of purchasing new equipment possibly, an air track.”

Linden Homes West Yorkshire field sales manager Clare Thacker said: “Cheerleading has really become more and more popular in recent years and has recently gained provisional recognition as an Olympic sport! We are seeing people of all ages enjoy this fabulous activity and we are delighted to support Mandy and Lazer Cheer, who are quite literally taking this activity to new heights!”
