Pink is colour for netball fundraiser

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A FUN netball tour­na­ment has been or­gan­ised in aid of a breast can­cer char­ity.

The event – open to men and women – will see teams dressed in pink bat­tle it out on the netball courts at the Fal­li­b­roome Academy on Sun­day (July 9).

Teams will be asked to pledge £50 to take part, which will go to­wards Pre­vent Breast Can­cer, the only breast can­cer char­ity in the UK that fo­cuses on pre­ven­tion rather than cure.

Becci Griffies, or­gan­iser, said: “Can­cer has un­for­tu­nately played a big role in my life so far, and I want to pro­tect not only the fu­ture gen­er­a­tions of my fam­ily, but those of ev­ery fam­ily out there. I can see a fu­ture with­out can­cer.”

The money raised will help fund re­search pro­mot­ing early di­ag­no­sis, screen­ing and life­style changes, aim­ing to stop breast can­cer for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.

The con­test will cul­mi­nate with a cel­e­bra­tory pink tea party af­ter­wards, with lots of su­per prizes in the raf­fle.

To en­ter a team with a max­i­mum of 10 play­ers email bec­ci­griff@hot­mail. co.uk, or go along to cheer on the teams and en­joy the af­ter­noon tea.
