Wednesday April 05, 2017 Written by Published in Netball

The Netball Cook Islands Under-21 fundraising committee has set up a page on the Givealittle website to raise $30,000 for the team’s campaign to the World Youth Netball Championship in Botswana.

The tournament in July will see Cook Islands along with 19 other nations competing for the top prize.

The John Glassie-coached side is grouped alongside host Botswana, Jamaica, Malaysia and Uganda in Pool C.

In a post on Facebook to its fans and sponsors, the fundraising committee thanked people for the support they have received so far.

“You may, or may not, be aware that our Cook Islands U21 team has qualified to go to Botswana, for the World Youth Cup! Such a massive achievement for these girls, but we can’t get there without your help,” the committee made up of Netball Cook Islands executives said

“We have set up a Givealittle page, and we humbly request that you donate what you can. Any amount big or small, it all helps towards our goal of seeing our girls flying their national flag on a world stage with pride!”

As of yesterday, only $520 was raised on the fundraising page (https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/u21netballcookislands) from the targeted $30,000.

Meanwhile the fundraising committee thanked the members of the community for supporting the golf ambrose fundraiser at the Rarotonga Golf Club last month.

“We had 40 teams take to the course, which was absolutely massive and we can’t thank you enough!”
