New baton donation for Huntingdon twirling troupe
MEMBERS of the Blue Vision Twirling Troupe can now reach new heights, thanks to a donation of five batons from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society.
Charlotte Turton, customer adviser at N&P’s Huntingdon branch, was approached by troupe leader Jo Bathurst for help to replace some old equipment – and Charlotte offered to donate five new twirling batons with ribbon.
Jo said: “We’re extremely grateful to N&P for the donation. It’s really important to us that we have good equipment for the girls to use, especially when we compete.
“It’s such a great troupe that we have, and for our younger members especially, it’s a good way of making friends and building their confidence.”
The Blue Vision Twirling Troupe, which is a non-profit making organisation established in May 2003, will next be performing at the 1st Regional Championships in St Neots on September 25.
