Netball Club Dressed for Success with Winning Bid

19 January 2014

Netball Kit Charitable Foundation Award

Chepstow Junior Netball Club was recently awarded £1000 funding by Monmouthshire Building Society Charitable Foundation to replace their outdated team kit, which had been in use for over fifteen years.

Established in 1997, Chepstow Junior Netball Club caters for girls from the age of eight to seventeen, coaching them in netball skills and providing them with the opportunity to play competitively against teams from across South Wales.

Meryl Slaymaker, Treasurer of Chepstow Junior Netball Club, commented on the award, “We were thrilled to receive such a substantial donation from the Foundation. Our old kit had begun to look tired and old fashioned compared to some of those worn by other clubs, and since we’re affiliated with the Welsh Netball Association, it’s important that our teams look professional during competitions and ceremonies.”

Since 2000, Monmouthshire Building Society Charitable Foundation has contributed over £140,000 to more than 230 local organisations and charities. In the last financial year alone, the Foundation has provided support to 29 local organisations. For a local organisation, this represents a significant contribution to local communities across South Wales.

Penny Reeves, Chairman of Monmouthshire Building Society Charitable Foundation, said, “We are extremely pleased to have been able to help the Club to provide funding for the new kit, and we’re sure that their fresh, modern look will inspire them to raise their game and go from strength to strength in future competitions.”
