On Sunday 12th March, The Beauty Industry’s flagship charity, Look Good Feel Better will hold their first ever fundraising netball tournament, in partnership with England Netball and M&S Beauty. This one-day, mixed-ability competition will see 30 teams battle it out on the courts of the world famous Copper Box Arena in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
It doesn’t matter if you haven’t played netball since school or you play every week – this competition is suitable for all skill levels. It’s about getting together with friends, family and colleagues; having fun on the court and raising money to support women and teenagers living with cancer.
Many LGFB supporters and beneficiaries are keen netball players and this is a great opportunity to offer a fundraising event that is slightly different to your usual walk or run.
Jodie Pullinger, LGFB Beneficiary and a keen netball player explains why she’s getting involved with the tournament: “I get to play a sport that I’m passionate about, whilst raising money for a charity that really helped me whilst I was having cancer treatment.
"The Look Good Feel Better Workshop made me feel more feminine and human again, boosting my confidence no end and I have used netball to help in my recovery, post treatment. Whether you’ve played before or fancy trying a completely new sport, I encourage everyone to take part and support this fantastic charity so that they can help more women like me.”
Off-court there’s plenty to keep players and spectators occupied. In the specially created ‘Playground’ you’ll have the opportunity to test your netball skills, receive a variety of beauty treatments or even have a coaching session with professional players. Brands confirmed include: Balance Me, Bumble and Bumble, Emma Bridgewater, Glamglow, La-Roche Posay, Skyn Iceland, Studio 10, The Perfume Shop and Ultrasun.
Individual and team entry is now full.
Spectator tickets are £10 which include a goody bag plus access to The ‘Playground’.
