A NETBALL club has been using their time wisely during lockdown by raising money for charity.

About 70 members from Colwyn Netball Club have put their athletic abilities to good use by walking 1,000 miles to raise vital funds for St David' Hospice in Llandudno.

Members started walking in April. They will continue until the end of June.

One member walked the equivalent of Hadrian's Wall in a virtual course.

Jemma Crutchlow-Porter, press officer for Colwyn Netball said: “St David’s is a fantastic local charity and at least two of our members work for the hospice, so we wanted to show our support during this difficult time.

“As a club, we've decided to challenge our members to put their athletic abilities to good use. It's a great way to help our local hospice whilst abiding by the Government's social distancing guidelines.

"We hope the funds and awareness raised go some way to contributing towards the huge financial shortfall St David’s Hospice is facing due to Covid-19.”

More than £300 has been raised.
