Corby Netball Club held a Netballathon on Saturday 22nd October at Corby Business Academy. 24 adult and junior teams played nonstop netball for 12 hours including one team who hadn’t played netball for 8 years. The tournament was organised by Hazel McConnell and her team of volunteers who played, umpired and kept the teams on the go for 12 hours. Hazel said ‘We had amazing support from parents organising refreshments, raffle and tombola with many great donations of raffle prizes from local businesses and parents, the day was a huge success’. The club raised an amazing £2843.75 for a local 7yr old boy Owen Trickett who has MECP2 Duplication Syndrome. The money raised will go towards the purchasing of ‘Eye Gaze’ technology which will help him to communicate with his family. Corby Netball Club would like to thank everyone who helped make the event a great success.
