Cancer support charity Look Good Feel Better is appealing for professional and amateur netball teams to sign up for its national Charity Netball Tournament 2024.
Held on Sunday 17th March 2024 at the University of Warwick, the event will raise vital funds for people undergoing treatment for cancer.
Working in partnership with England Netball, the tournament is being held in the top-class sports facilities at the University of Warwick’s Sports and Wellness Hub. During the day, competing teams will benefit from professional coaching and umpiring from England Netball, while meeting and learning tips and tricks from elite athletes from the netball world.
Registration is still open for netball teams of all levels at https://lookgoodfeelbetter.co.uk/charity-netball-tournament/
Fantastic prizes are up for grabs on the day, and players will each receive a generous goodie bag worth over £100 to take home. This will be the fifth time the event has been held since its inception in 2017, raising over £138,000 to date and providing support for over 2,500 people living with cancer.
Headline sponsors, Collection Cosmetics, which produces high-quality products at an affordable price, will be a major presence on the day, showcasing their popular products and entering a team into the competition.
Look Good Feel Better knows how challenging it can be to process a cancer diagnosis and manage the physical and emotional side effects of cancer treatment. The charity runs workshops face-to-face and classes virtually to support women, men, and young adults through this time. Services are free and open to anyone facing cancer, and the workshops are led by trained volunteers from the beauty industry to provide practical advice about changes to skin, eyebrows, eyelashes, hair, and nails during treatment, and body confidence.
Ian Daniels, Director of Fundraising and Head of Communications, at Look Good Feel Better, says: “It is estimated that there are currently three million people living in the UK with cancer, and that figure is expected to rise to four million by 2030, so we know that demand for our specialist services and support will continue to grow.
“As a national charity, deeply rooted in local communities, we want to help more people, in more places, delivering an inclusive and impactful service to people needing support.
“We are looking forward to welcoming all the players and spectators at what promises to be a spectacular sporting event, so if you are interested in netball, there is still an opportunity to sign up now.”
