A squad of cheerleaders from Weston Super Mare are celebrating thanks to a donation from the Grand Pier towards a new uniform that they can wear for competitions nationally in 2016.

Harleigh Janes, Coach for the Weston Superstars said “ I wrote to the Grand Pier in January because we were desperate for some new uniforms for the squad and some of the parents and families find the costs of the squad high.  We only charge our squads enough money to cover the hall and training costs so we have nothing left over to buy uniforms. As you can imagine we were delighted when the Grand Pier agreed to sponsor some competition uniform.”

Tim Moyle, General Manager of the Grand Pier said “ We were delighted to be able to contribute a sum of money for the Weston Super Stars Training uniform. The new uniform will be dual branded and will help the squad maintain a professional look when travelling away for competitions. We wish them every success this year.”

The squad collected their uniforms on the Grand Pier and took the opportunity to test the new games which had just arrived for the 2016 season. Amongst them were Transformers, Milk Jug Toss, Air FX Hockey Tables, Monster Drop Chaos, Justice Leagues and Wack and Win.

Harleigh said ‘We had a great time on the Pier. If anyone is interested in joining the squad or would like more information regarding our work I would be delighted to hear from them on 07854 728622.’

About the Grand Pier

The Grand Pier is an iconic attraction in Weston-super-Mare welcoming hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. Standing at 400 metres long supported by 600 iron piles beneath it, the Pier was originally built in 1903 and now a state-of-the-art leisure and entertainment facility. It was completely refurbished in 2008 as part of a multi-million pound investment after a fire. Today it the Grand Pier offers family fun rides and attractions including a go-kart track, F1 simulators, arcade machines and soft play for younger children. And there are dozens of catering options, from the elegant Tiffany’s Tea Rooms to traditional fish and chips. Since it re-opened in 2010, the Pier has become synonymous with hosting high profile events in Weston-super-Mare and is a popular setting for weddings, events and film locations due to its stunning backdrop
