The Hawks give a workshop at Throston Primary School.

Throston Primary School, of Flint Walk in Hartlepool, has proved to be fantastic backers of the Hartlepool Hawks.

The help for the Hawks comes at a time when the academy is preparing to represent the UK at the European Cheerleading Championships.

The competition is being held in Kopar in Slovenia on July 9 and July 10. The Hartlepool Hawks Movement, Youth level 2 cheer dance team, and the junior level 5 stunt group called Fierce, will both be there.

And to help them cover the £8,000 cost of getting the Hawks to Slovenia, Throston Primary School has been a great help with various fundraising activities.

Hawks founder Rebecca Taylor said: “Throston Primary School has been very supportive of the Hawks and have raised over £800. One of their pupils is one of the 13 going to Slovenia in 14 days.

“The school did two non-uniform days, cake sales and also two full days of workshops where Hawks coaches came into the school and did a workshop with each class.”
