Team story

[p]What? We are aiming for a new Guinness World Record for the most goals scored in 24 hours by a netball squad. This will be a real test of endurance as we try to rack up the shots. [/p][p]When? Counting starts on Thursday 13th September at 8pm and will continue, non-stop, until Friday 14th September at 8pm.[/p][p]Why? After battling skin cancer in 2012, one of our netball squad was diagnosed with an aggressive secondary melanoma in her lungs in April of this year and started undergoing immunotherapy treatment. To show her our love and support, as well as those involved in her treatment, we wanted to do something as sporty and as fun as her, using one of her favourite sports, so we decided to attempt this world record. On the 1st September she passed away, having faced everything with a determination and strength that has been an inspiration to all of us. We want to make this World Record attempt a fitting tribute to the remarkable young woman that she was.[/p][p]The money we raise will be split between the Rosemere Cancer Foundation and the St. John’s Hospice. [/p][p]Where? Lancaster University's Sports Hall, which we very much appreciate.[/p][p]So? Please sponsor us and help us to raise as much as possible.[/p][p][b]Update - Saturday 15th September[/b][/p][p]Well...what a 24 hours that was![/p][p]We managed to score 14,248 goals so that's what I will be sending in to Guinness. That, and a lot of paperwork![/p][p]A massive thank you to everyone that helped us with this - all our supporters, families, bakers, rafflers, counters, umpires, independent witnesses and everyone else. Plus a special mention to Joe and all the staff at Lancaster Uni Sports Hall, not only for their facilities but all their support and calm help. And also to Mark at Westmoreland Fire and Security for sorting out the 24 hour filming via their cctv. Without these two elements it wouldn't have been possible to even make the attempt.[/p][p]All the money we raised on the night has been counted and added into the total here as money raised offline. If you've not donated yet then please do. We want to not only reach our target, but smash through it if possible for these two amazing charities. [/p][p]Thank you again for supporting us, in all the many ways that you have, in the memory of our absolutely wonderful and inspiring friend and team mate Victoria. [/p][p][br][/p]
