The Tennis-athon raised over £100 for two charities – Marie Curie Cancer Care and Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research

Co-organiser Ben Reinhardt said:
“A big thank  you to the helpers, players, spectators and donators who supported the day. It really was much appreciated as every penny helps in the work that the two charities do in saving lives and helping those affected by these illnesses.”
