What Is Fundraiser Friday
On November 5th Northumbria Sport Launched the Fundraiser Friday initiative. These one off events see our Sports Clubs come together to organise events to raise money for local charities. In the first semester we have held two separate events that have been extremely successful.
The First event was a Kwik Cricket tournament organised by Northumbria Cricket Club, which saw over 80 students compete to bring home the crown. The event was fiercely competed but always played fairly, and after some fantastic performances the Men’s Football Team took home the trophy. The Cricket Club managed to raise a fantastic £831 for the Chloe and Liam Together Forever Trust.
The Second Event took place on the 3rd December and was a mixed Netball tournament organised by our own Netball Club. This event was hotly anticipated and saw over 140 students attend. Over the 4 hours some great Netball was played, and tight fought final saw a mixture of the Rugby Union and Netball team crowned victors. A massive thanks must go out to those who donated as the Netball team managed to raise a fantastic £909.
