A GROUP of young talented baton twirlers from Weston is appealing for sponsorship.
The Eclipse Twirlers, who recently took part in the National Baton Twirling Association championship finals, is hoping to attract support from businesses in the town.
A spokesman for the group said: “Most troupes have some form of sponsorship, which means we are at a disadvantage when we attend competitions.
“We don’t even have a permanent venue to practice in at the moment, and would be very grateful if a local business could sponsor us.”
The troupe was formed four years ago, and group members and their families regularly fund-raise to pay for travel, costumes and other necessities.
Anyone who is interested in sponsoring the Eclipse twirlers can ring Emma on 07791 781799 or Jess on 07787 636362.
