On Thursday 19th March we held a Charity high 5 tournament in aid of raising funds for Cancer Research UK. The tournament was held at Leyland and 18 primary school teams entered which was fantastic, totally to a massive 134 young netball players on show.
The 18 teams were split up into two pools and games were underway by 1pm. Lots of schools and teams made effort to make donations and raise awareness for CRUK by wearing something pink! The day was about having fun, taking part in lots of friendly competition and supporting our partnership charity CRUK!
In total we raised a HUGE £669.10 for Cancer Research UK, but we must say a big special mention and thankyou to St Marys Oswaldtwistle Primary School for donating a massive £177.00 of that money after doing some fundraising at school! An excellent contribution and a school to be very proud of!
Each pool consisted of 9 teams ensuring each primary school had at least 8 full games of high 5 netball. The results from the pools were:
I would like to say a huge thank you to all teachers, players, parents and volunteers for supporting the event. It was a great success and I look forward to seeing you all again in the future!
