Cockle Bay hosted a fundraising tennis tournament for Totara Hospice and raised $4,864.00. The event was organised by Cockle Bay, Pakuranga and Howick Tennis Clubs.
Midweek tennis ladies from Howick, Cockle Bay, Sunnyhills, Bucklands Beach, Pakuranga, Karaka and Manly participated.
We had intended to hold the tournament last year but Covid-19 prevented this. In the past we have approached local businesses for prizes but it was not appropriate this year considering the hard times they have all been through.
With such a good charity to raise for, the 52 ladies playing in the tournament and another 15 coming for lunch were very generous.
Great work by Lorena Ennor and her team of Midweek players.
