Junior and senior members of City of Ely Netball Club helped raised more than £70 for Children in Need.
Club members held a photo night, netball match and raffle, with players of all ages taking part. The event raised £75.60 for the charity.
In their most recent Cambridgeshire Netball League Division 1 match, City of Ely II lost out by a single goal to East Cambridgeshire rivals Burwell II.
Despite leading for most of the match, City had the win snatched away from them in the last quarter. Successive, successful long range shots from the Burwell attack were the nail in the coffin as City fell, 27-26.
City’s player of the match was captain Olivia Petherick.
City of Ely Under 16s, meanwhile, enjoyed a happier outcome in their match against Rookies. Their 29-18 victory keeps them at the top of the County Premier Youth League. Juliet Koopowitz was outstanding in defence.
