Johnstone’s Decorating Centre in Enniskillen has donated £500 to a local cheerleading team as part of a recent community makeover competition exclusively for the town.

 

Many community projects were entered into the competition, giving the judges plenty to consider when tasked with picking just one lucky winner. Jet’s Cheerleading Squad, which has recently moved to a new and very bare industrial space, stood out to the judges as they thought the club would benefit most from a colourful makeover.

 

Majella Beacom, who runs the club with her sister Sarah having taken over from their mother, was presented with £500 of vouchers to spend at the Johnstone’s Decorating Centre on Derrychara Link in the town.

 

Using the donation, they were able to purchase all the materials and equipment needed to complete the makeover of their new club rooms including the main hall, offices, kitchen area and toilets. Johnstone’s was on hand to advise on product choice and colour schemes, with the team opting for a grey and white theme to complement their purple practice mats.

 

Johnstone’s new Quick Dry Polyurethane Flortred, which is designed to provide a durable finish highly resistant to scratches, was applied to the existing concrete floor in a pale grey colour. Its quick drying formula meant that the floor could be walked on again just six hours after application, significantly sooner than traditional solvent-based alternatives, enabling the cheerleading troupe to get back to training as soon as possible. 

 

Johnstone’s Stormshield Smooth Masonry was the perfect choice for the exposed blockwork walls inside the building as it boasts excellent dirt resistance properties meaning it will remain in pristine condition for years to come.

 

The newly redecorated club house also features a mural painted by one of the senior members of the squad and the use of Johnstone’s Magnetic Blackboard paint, allows members of the club to add their own personal touches to make the space their own. 

 

Majella said: “We were absolutely over-the-moon when we found out that we’d won the Johnstone’s makeover competition. It’s made such a difference being able to design our new club house just the way we wanted straight away - we would never have been able to finish it off the way it is now without Johnstone’s.”

 

“It’s been a real team effort, the girls have enjoyed getting involved and we’re all so excited now it’s finished. We had our first training session the other day and everyone was motivated and raring to go!”
