After a three-year hiatus, the Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) Charity Netball Tournament returned with roaring success.
20 teams went head-to-head on court on Sunday 26 March at the University of Warwick Sports Hub all while raising vital funds and awareness for the cancer charity.
Future Rose and Leeds Rhinos player Millie Sanders and Commonwealth Games gold medal winning captain Ama Agbeze were on hand throughout the day to support teams and play their part.
Speaking after the event Lizzie Cooper, Senior Fundraising Manager at LGFB, said: “After a three-year hiatus it was a real joy to see the tournament make its return and at such a fantastic venue.
“The day was bursting at the seams with team spirit, community, and supportiveness, both on and off the courts. It was amazing to see so many people coming together again to play netball and show their support for the charity in this way.
“We’re thrilled to share that over £18,000 has been raised from the event which will have a significant impact on our cancer support services across the UK.
“We’re so grateful to the incredible team at England Netball and Warwick Sport for helping us to deliver such a brilliant and professional event and to all the players and spectators who participated and have helped take Look Good Feel Better a step closer to being there for anyone, anywhere, living with a cancer diagnosis.”
Millie added: “The event was a success – everyone there was lovely and there was some great netball.
“It was nice to interact with the individuals on the day and get to know them on a personal level and find out what got them involved in netball and where they are up to on their journey!”
