The John Thornton Young Achievers Foundation (JTYAF) is delighted to announce that they have been selected as ‘Charity of the Year’ by Ferndown Squash Club. The community of Ferndown is totally supportive of the Foundation and Pete Thornton Chairman of the JTYAF, commented, “It’s fantastic to see the local community coming together to invest in their young people. We couldn’t ask for anymore.”
Ferndown Squash Club kicked off their fundraising on a recent visit to Jersey Squash Festival. Players were fined a £1 for every point they lost. Although they had a really successful tournament they managed to raise over £100!
The Junior Squash Section is also getting involved in the fundraising and played their first friendly match against Two Riversmeet Squash Juniors (Christchurch). They showed fantastic spirit and all the games were played with a commendable sporting attitude. All of the players were winners for their efforts and hard work both on the court and off.
The JTYAF would like to thank all members of Ferndown Squash Club for their support and wish them a successful year ahead.
Ferndown Junior Squash Club runs every Saturday morning from 10.00am to 11.30am at Ferndown Leisure Centre, all standards are welcome. Contact: Simon Jennings Mob 07979 244298 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
