The Syrian community in Yorkshire have held a silent vigil for the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks.
Dozens of people, including children, stood on the town hall steps in Leeds city centre to demonstrate solidarity with the people of France. The vigil took place yesterday Sunday August 18, 2015.
A cheerleading group from Bradford, who were crowned world champions three years ago, say a lack of money means they may miss the chance to compete in Europe.
The Jewels all have learning difficulties and disabilities.
They have raised £12,000 for the trip to Paris, but are short of another £8,000.
Finding the money would also give some of the team their first trip abroad.
Sarah Clark went to see them rehearse:
Cheerleader Nathalie Sargent and her mother, Carol Beardmore, say the chance to go on a trip to European cheerleading championships in Paris would be the trip of a lifetime:
Robyn Morrison, the coach of a group of cheerleaders with various disabilities and learning difficulties, says the trip would mean the world to the group - but only if they can raise the necessary cash:
A disabled cheerleading group from Bradford, who were crowd world champions 3 years ago, say a lack of funds means they can't afford to compete in the European championships in Paris in three weeks time.
The Jewels have already raised over £12,000 for the cost of the trip but are short by £8,000. They are now hoping the cash can be found and the trip can go ahead.
The team is made up of 17 members, age between 20 and 59.
For some of the group, the trip would be their first time abroad, and the chance to show off their talents in front of thousands.
The full route of next year's Tour De France has been revealed at a ceremony in Paris.
