Christmas Hamper Scamper appeal update

Gloucestershire Netball proudly supported the Hamper Scamper appeal for the second time in December 2015. Thank you for all your help and your donations of food this year!

The club who collected the most in value (divided by number of players in the club) this year, winning a match ball and two training balls is Tigers Netball Club.

In total, we collected enough food for 10 hampers! Thank you to all those clubs who supported us, including: Survivors, Nomads, Tigers, Gloucester Ladies, United, Hucclecote and one hamper from the Gloucestershire Netball committee!

The County Community Project (CCP) is a charity which helps disadvantaged children, young people, families and vulnerable adults throughout Gloucestershire. Hamper Scamper is CCP’s Christmas-giving scheme, providing gifts and food hampers for those disadvantaged groups. This year over 900 food hampers went out with over a thousand gifts too.
