Over £1,000 raised in charity netball tournament

Thursfields Solicitors has helped to raise more than £1,100 for charity after jointly organising a netball tournament in memory of a well-known local player.

More than 70 people competed in seven mixed teams in the event at Stourport Sports Club last month, each team paying an entry fee of £100.

The tournament was motivated by Becky Giddins, a talented sportswoman and founding member of Worcester Netball Club, who died aged just 34 in 2016 after fighting a long battle with skin cancer.

Once proceeds from a charity raffle were added, a total of £1,141 was raised from the day and this will be donated to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Charities’ ‘Fighting Skin Cancer Appeal’.

Lucky Bassi, a property litigation solicitor at Thursfields’ Kidderminster office, jointly organised the event with Siobhan Record of Cre8 Wealth Management.

Lucky said: “Everyone had a great time and enjoyed not only the exercise and competition but also raising such a lot of money for a great cause in memory of Becky Giddins.”

Mike Hammond, chief executive of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Charity, said: “We’re really grateful to Thursfields Solicitors and Cre8 Wealth Management for organising such a great event. The money raised will go towards helping patients with skin cancer and raising awareness of this disease.”

The charity netball tournament was won by a team from Dains Accountants.
