Ladies from Woodland Lawn Tennis Club's Friday group have been busy raising money for charity.
Woodland Lawn Tennis Club’s Friday ladies group has been busy raising money for the charity CALM – the Campaign Against Living Miserably.
The ladies were inspired by one of their group, Julie Hunt, after hearing the heart-breaking story of her son Farrell, who lost his life to depression.
A raffle was held and donations given while they tucked into an array of tasty treats before being put through their paces by Woodland’s coach, Steve Pantling.
A total of £115 was raised to help the charity’s work to prevent male suicide and support families who have been bereaved.
Club secretary, Annie Buckingham was delighted with the amount donated. She said: “Losing your child through suicide must be one of the most devastating things that can happen to you so who wouldn’t want to help a charity working hard to prevent this.
“The Friday ladies are always there to support each others causes which is part of what makes the group so special.”
