On Friday 14 June RG sent a team of 10 to participate in a charity netball tournament in aid of Daft as a Brush.
Daft as a Brush Cancer Patient Care provides a free transport service to and from the Freeman/RVI Hospitals for outpatients undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy treatment – some from as far afield as the Scottish Borders, North Yorkshire and West Cumbria.
The event, organised by Sintons and held at the newly opened Eagles Community Arena, consisted of 9 teams from throughout the region.
The RG team of Adam Tindale, Chris Peverley, Jennifer Turner, Jonny Delaney, Kenny Johnsone, Kim Maines, Lewis Milburn, Mel Denny, Natasha Robson and Stephen Callaghan along with their manager Fiona Hall, battled their way to a respectable third place, losing only to eventual winners Sintons, 4-3, in the final game.
As you can see from the list of results below, RG put in a strong showing despite none of the boys having playing netball before.
The rest of RG’s results were:
Santander v RG – win 1 – 3
RG v Tait Walker – draw 0 – 0
Strutt & Parker/BNP Paribas v RG – draw 2 – 2
RG v Deloitte – win 4 – 2
RG v Nationwide Crash Repairs – win 5 – 0
RG v Keyfort Group – win 3 – 0
Neural Pathways v RG – win 0 – 11
RG v Sanderson Weatherall – win 4 – 0
Sintons v RG – lost 4 – 3
Thanks to all of the RG team for not only taking part but coming away almost undefeated and congratulations to Sintons for organising such an enjoyable tournament for an excellent cause.
