The Netball team deliver provisions to the Gloucester Food Bank

The Netballers have been busy fundraising for their tour to Malta, which departs on 9th February for five days. We are taking 30 girls and have fixtures arranged against schools and clubs for our A, B and C teams. When the courts were too icy to play on just before Christmas, we decided it would be nice to give something back to those who are not as fortunate as us. We used some of the money from one of our cake sales to go to the local supermarket and buy some provisions for the Gloucester Food Bank. The girls had a list from the food bank of all the things they desperately needed in order to make up their food parcels.

On tour, in addition to our fixtures, we will have a chance to visit Popeye Village, Qawra, Valletta and the Island of Gozo. We have had fantastic support from local businesses and are extremely grateful to Hi-Tech Windows, Bovis Homes and R W Bearings for the generous sponsorship. A full report from the tour and photos of our new team kit will follow after half term.
