On Sunday 29th September, 'David' met 'Goliath' for a tennis tournament like no other and raised £830 (and counting) for our wonderful cause in the process...
The Sheret family are fantastic supporters of the charity, getting involved with everything we do; sponsoring a child, The Mud House Club, joining in at the Little Festival... we couldn't thank them enough.
This year they decided to go even further, arranging a tennis tournament on our behalf! Gordon 'Goliath' Sheret (aged 59) took on Joel 'David' Brittain (aged 25). Gordon hadn't played tennis for 7 years, his last foray ending with a knee injury in hospital, but as a pathologically competitive individual, he just can't help himself!
Joel on the other hand is superfit, an "energy dynamo", but has never really played tennis before.
With over 25 donations totalling £830 at the time of writing, the guys had all the support to get them through this rigorous match, ending in 'Goliath' taking home a victory.
A huge thank you for their initiative in fundraising and, of course, their continued support, along with their generous donors.

If you have a fundraising idea, do get in touch as we can offer plenty of support and would be so appreciative of any efforts. Speak to Hannah on firstname.lastname@example.org or through the chat function on our website.
