Big cheers for Heyford Park pupil!

By Sarah Edwards at

Local house builder Dorchester Living is sponsoring a pupil of Heyford Park Free School in Upper Heyford to attend the European Cheerleading Championship 2017 in Zagreb, Croatia.

Mione Romain, 15 and four other cheerleaders at Bicester Elite Cheer United are planning to attend the European championships but are calling on the local community to help them fundraise for the trip.

Dorchester Living were alerted to the cheerleader’s plight through Mione’s mother who got in touch looking for support. The company was keen to help and has offered to pay for Mione’s transport and accommodation.

Paul Silver, chief executive of Dorchester Living, said: “It is not every day you get to take part in a European championship and we felt it was important to support Mione and the cheerleading group in realising their dreams. We wish them all the very best for the championships and congratulate Mione and her fellow cheerleaders on their achievements so far.”

Mione’s mother Gilly Webb, added: “I am extremely proud of Mione representing the UK with her team mates and I can’t wait to see them perform in Croatia. I’d like to thank Dorchester Living for all their support.”
