Netball squad organise charity festival

Thursday 19 Dec 2013

The Myerscough College Netball squad have organised a special festival to raise money for the PAPYRUS charity. 

Staff and students paid to play in the competition and watch the teams, including a men’s side dressed in full netball kit, taking part, raising a substantial sum for the student’s Charity of The Year.

Myerscough College Netball Coach and Advanced Teaching Practitioner for Sport, Joanne Chadwick said:  “I’m very proud that the girls organised and ran the even to raise money for charity. It was lovely to see staff and student’s taking part in this annual Christmas event.  Netball is growing from strength to strength and it was lovely to end such a successful term one with this festival”. 

PAPYRUS is a charity that was founded in Lancashire and aims to reduce and prevent suicide in the young.

Meanwhile, the Myerscough College Netball team continues to go from strength to strength. After numerous tournament wins last year, the ladies are enjoying another successful campaign this time round.
