Boroondara Netball Association
Through numerous fundraising activities, the Boroondara Netball Association has raised $12,000 that will go towards funding a lunchtime nutrition program for students at the Tongabezi Trust School in Zambia. The Association has raised enough money for each child at the school to eat one meal a day for a year. The Association has also delivered netball dresses, skirts, whistles, bibs, balls, rule books and manuals to help with the schools netball program. As part of a recent world trip, Boroondara NA representative Emma Cartwright and Amanda Sherwen spent three days at Tongabezi running a school holiday netball clinic. Amanda and Sally Sherwen plan to spend five days working with the school’s budding young netballers while they are there, setting training methods in place that can be followed in future years.
