Net 10 for Life for Cancer Research UK is coming!

Net 10 for life is England Netball's initiative, demonstrating our commitment to England Netball’s charity partnership with Cancer Research UK! This year we want to be bigger and better!!

Every league and team in the country is invited to take part in this exciting fundraising initiative to help raise thousands of pounds for this incredible charity. All we ask is that for one week this year, like last, we all pull together to support and co-operate in what will be a fantastic team effort!

What does Net for 10 Life involve?

The week beginning 11th February 2013 is Net for Life fortnight and all matches played during this fortnight will help contribute to the fundraising. Each team pledges to donate 10p per goal scored in their weekly fixture. So for example;

Luton Lollypop Ladies 45 (£4.50) v Dunstable Dinner Ladies 33 (£3.30)
Total pledge from each team = £7.80

Umpires are also encouraged to get involved, by swapping their whites for some pinks, and rounding any donations up to the nearest pound. At the end of the match a willing volunteer needs to collect up the pledges and donate them online by linking their Just Giving page to the England Netball team page here:

And it's as simple as that! 

Netball East have held Net 10 for Life (our unique charity project/initiativve supporting Cancer Research) for the past couple of years and over the last 2 years we have raised nearly £5,000 for Cancer Research. This year the plan is to roll out the concept Nationally with all 9 regions now taking part, we are therefore very keen that spread the message on a national level as well as at a regional level.

Attached is a PDF poster you can use to promote Net 10 for Life fortnight, we would love it if you could help us raise even more awareness of the project.
