Barts and the London Netball Team successfully bid for a grant of £911 from the Annual Fund to provide new and much needed equipment, to cover match fees and to fund a mixed tournament for all members of the club and its alumni.
Following a huge surge in interest and recruitment in September 2014, the netball club had to create an extra netball team to accommodate the new players. The addition of another team put a strain on the budget, so with the Annual Fund grant they have been able to buy more kit, bibs and balls to accommodate the new team, as well as being able to cover the increased cost of court hire, umpires and match fees. The tournament involving current players and alumni is scheduled to take place in May 2015.
I would like to thank the annual fund and all those who contributed for the kind donation to our netball club; it has been extremely useful and greatly appreciated by all of the girls who are members of the club.
