A majorette troupe from Merriott will be holding a Majorette Competition with a Fun Day; Sunday 13th August (This coming Sunday)!
The day will give the opportunity to see some award winning Majorette Troupes compete against each other, in aid of two fantastic Somerset Charities; St Margaret’s Hospice and Towards Tomorrow Together, both close to Merriott Majorettes’ hearts.
St Margaret’s Hospice provides palliative care to patients with life limiting conditions, supporting their families through difficult times ahead.
Towards Tomorrow Together provides families with support through the loss of a baby or child, as well as memory boxes before families leave the hospital, to assist with making memories.
The day will include displays from Devon Dynamite Majorettes, Cullumpton Ace, Port Bredy Allstars, Chard Evolution and Castle Cary Cygnets; with duets, parent fun and lunch time activities which are majorette themed.
As well as this competition there is a Fun Day, to add to the already special event. Stalls with various activities, and things to buy.
Disney’s Anna and Elsa have agreed to come along, will be there from 11am.
Not forgetting our raffle, with a chance to win some wonderful days out from Yeovil Football Club to Haynes, with a selection of hampers, there are a lovely range of prizes.
These are just a few we have to offer
(There is still time to donate if you wish to).
The day will begin with the first section which will be Military displays from 9.30am, with presentation of trophies at around 5pm.
There will be a BBQ, cake and tuck shop stalls too.
This will be the second year running Merriott Majorettes have given up their limited time to make a day for Charity. They’re a fantastic team.
Huge thank you to everyone involved, who will be making the day possible, particularly the troupes traveling from across the South West to join in with the special event.
If you’re at a loose end, pop over and support these two great causes.
