Fund Raiser 2011 - Microloan

On Saturday 7th May 2011 the juniors of Hartswood Tennis Club took part in a fundraising event to raise money for the MicroLoan Foundation which is a UK based charity, providing small loans, basic business training and continuing guidance to groups of women, primarily in sub-Saharan Africa. The event is called the 'aroundtheworldathon', which involves the children playing a sponsored game of tennis running from one end of the court, hitting a ball and running to the other end of the court.

The day this year included a BBQ, a raffle, an auction and a cake sale.

This event followed on from last year's fundraiser which raised over £2,400 and we were keen to beat that this year.
