12 Hour Charity Match – 1st July 2018

Farnham Netball Club – 12 Hour Charity Netball Match

Farnham Netball Club just wanted to take this opportunity to pass on our heartfelt thanks to all of you, who so generously supported us in our mad endeavour to play netball for 12 hours straight … and in so doing support our teammates and raise vital funds for MIND and TAMBA.
As you all know, Sunday July 1st was blisteringly hot at St Nicholas’ School in Fleet – temperatures peaked at 31oC! But somehow our two Squads managed to keep the ball and our legs moving all day.  We had phenomenal support, with 28 teams from across the South East come to play us, and about 300 spectators through the course of the day.  The atmosphere was brilliant, although by the end we were all incredibly tired and emotional (and thirsty!!).
It was, however, so so worth it!  This week, we have done the final tot up and the post-event press release has been distributed – which you can read our first bit of coverage here !  Through your support in entering a team, buying food & drink on the day, bidding on those auction items and buying raffle tickets, or donating on our Justgiving page, you have made a considerable contribution in enabling us to raise a whopping …  £12,230.00 !!

We have absolutely smashed our original target, so on behalf of Tina, Sam, the two charities and all of us at Farnham Netball Club, a massive THANK YOU to you all!

With love,

Farnham Netball Club. 


Info on event below…

Farnham Netball Club have set themselves a challenge of playing 12 hours of non-stop Netball on the 1st July 2018 to raise money and awareness for two charities that have deeply affected members of the club.

Within one month of each other two members of Farnham Netball club experienced tragic losses in their lives.

Tina’s 18 year old son Tom took his own life in October 2017 after battling with mental health issues. Tina has chosen to raise money for, MIND, The Mental Health Charity. MIND are working to make sure nobody has to face a mental health problem alone. People need the support from Mind more than ever, and demand for their services is growing as 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives.

Sam, was pregnant with identical twin boys and was diagnosed with TTTS, a rare but life-threatening condition that affects 10 to 15 percent of identical twins that share a placenta. After undergoing unsuccessful treatment she tragically lost both her boys, Jack & Harley, in November 2017. Sam has chosen to raise money for TAMBA (Twins and Multiple Births Association). Money raised will go towards their Bereavement Support Group and their research into TTTS (Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome).
