A team of cheerleaders who competed in continental competition last year will be returning home next month to raise money for a hospice.

The Fame All Star Cheerleaders, who train in Southgate College, will be competing in the ‘North London’s Got Talent’ competition to raise money for North London Hospice.

The Hospice, which operates across Barnet, Enfield and Haringey, is running the talent competition to raise money to help care for its patients.

Liz Gordon, who runs Fame All Star, said that all five of their teams with dancers ranging from ages four to 29 would be taking part in a “mish-mash routine”.

She said: “There is real excitement, it should be really good. It is more personal, and a pleasure to perform without having to be judged and for there to be less pressure.

“Our cheerleading is made up of stunts, jumps, tumbling and dance. We want to display our different skill levels. You will see plenty of people lifted right up into the air.

“This is the first time all our cheerleaders will be up on stage together at the same time. We have performed on big stages before, including at the Echo Arena in Liverpool for a European competition, and one of our teams is going to be competing in the USA. But this is our first performance of the season, so for our new girls this will be their very first performance.

“This is an amazing cause in our area, we are looking forward to it.”

North London's Got Talent will take place at the artsdepot in North Finchley on Saturday, 6 February.
