She has an interest in the cheerleading group as her granddaughter Amy is one of the co-captains of the girls traveling to the US.
Natalie Samuel, who runs the group with her mother Gill, handed George a token of thanks to thank him for his generosity along with a card signed by all of the group. He said: “Thank you very much. This is awesome. I can’t wait for you to join us on our journey, see all the gear we bought for the girls.”
George said: “I just want to see the girls do well, especially my granddaughter Amy. Of course the company gave the money, not me. I lost my wife five years ago and about seven months ago I decided that enough was enough, I had to get myself moving again. So I founded this building company and the results have been brilliant. It was good to hand over the money.”
The building company is based in Mayfield and can do anything up to building an entire house. All trades are on call with a core team of around 12 staff members running the business.
Gill Samuel and daughter Natalie, who run Diamonds Cheerleaders, coach the team in various age groups primarily at Liberton High School. Following calls for a new training facility in the summer after the board changed their contract to use the high-ceilinged space in Liberton, John Beatson of the Goodtrees Neighborhood Center responded, offering the group space there every week.
