Net 10 for Life is a campaign run nationally by England Netball every March, and we encourage our members and participants to get involved in a variety of ways. This year we have asked teams to donate 10p per goal scored in their league matches, and for their umpires to do the same.
Team Northumbria showed their support by allowing us to take over fundraising duties for the evening, as they took to the court in their NSL tie against Manchester Thunder. Despite the huge crowd and great home atmosphere, Team Northumbria trailed throughout; eventually losing the match 31-64.
Although it wasn’t to be Team Northumbria’s night, our fundraising efforts saw us raise a fantastic £417! We would like to say a huge thank you to everybody who donated prizes, bought tickets and supported us on the evening. Without your generosity we would not have raised such a great amount of money for this greatly appreciated charity. Your donations will go directly to Cancer Research UK and contribute to their efforts in beating cancer sooner.
