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.

It has 29 members, ranging from five to 29, and meets twice a week.
