Breakpoint 2019 – a brilliant fundraiser enjoyed by all!
On Friday, 21st June, Mark Love led the many people attending in their support of Robyn Moore, who is raising money for TheBrightIdeasForTennis Breakpoint 2109. Robyn has PTSD and has been working unbelievably hard to raise funds for people with mental health conditions. Her target was to hit 200,000 balls a distance of 5 million metres (one metre for every young person with a mental health condition in the UK) by travelling to 47 venues around the country in an effort to raise funds.
The afternoon at Purley Bury was a great success with Robyn hitting balls, junior coaching taking place, a very full disabled session between 6.30 and 7.30 pm, supported as always by many older junior volunteers and some senior members and parents. Stewart kindly cooked burgers and hot dogs on the barbecue, selling everything he had. Alison ran a cash raffle, which raised £61.60 and Mark donated the proceeds from coaching, which amounted to £111 for the fundraising session held in the afternoon. The Tennis Club Charity donated a further £127.40 from our disabled tennis funds to make a total donation of £300.
Robyn has now completed her tour and has so far raised £30,000! If you would like to support her with a small donation – and many thanks to those of you that have donated personally providing additional Gift Aid – please go to www.breakpoint2019 and click on ‘Donate Now’. It’s a great cause and Robyn deserves to be supported after such an incredible effort.
Thanks to everybody that helped out at the Breakpoint event at PBTC – Mark and Danielle and all the coaching support volunteers, Kelly and Clive, Val and Pete on the bar, Stewart on the BBQ, Alison on the raffle and advertising posters, plus the many behind the scenes too numerous to mention. It was a great afternoon and very worthwhile!
Grounds working party 22 June
Fourteen enthusiastic volunteers turned out on Saturday 22 June to tidy the grounds of our tennis club in preparation for Finals Day. Hedges and grass areas were cut, flower beds weeded, gutters cleared and a full sweep and tidy of the decking, all pathways and the car park. It was a mammoth task but the results are worth the effort put in by all.
Thank you so much to all who came down to help.
