The world of baton twirling is at Kay Nor­man’s feet. But the talented Canvey girl is in a spin about raising cash for vita! training.

Kay, 13, of Thameside Crescent, was a winner in the National Baton Twirling Association cham-pionships in Torbay, Devon. She recently met the world’s top twirler, Donald Garcia, who amazed millions with his record-breakine skills on TV.

Dad Terry, spokesman for the National Baton Twirling Association, said: “Kay has a natural ability and given the right training she could become a future world champion.”

Kay already has her sights on the European championships in Lyon, France.

A pupil at Castle View School, Sue is a member of Canvey Supreme Twirlers, and started the sport six years ago.

Terry is looking for spon­sors who could support the cost of sending Kay to top trainers in Britain, Europe and America. The initial cost could be as little as £500. He said: “Sponsors would be helping a youngster achieve her am­bition.
