Anyone for Tennis
I'd like to tell people about an exciting new event that Marie Curie Cancer Care is running for the first time this year (May to September). Itís called ĎAnyone for Tennisí and is open to players of any standard, across the UK.
Itís free to register and you receive a fundraising kit. Furthermore, the winner of each tournament will be entered into a prize draw, with the chance to win prizes ranging from sports equipment to Centre Court tickets for Wimbledon 2010.
We want to ensure that the event is a huge success as the money raised will help ensure that more terminally ill cancer patients have the choice of dying in their own home, surrounded by their families. Marie Curie Nurses work through the night to make sure patients are as comfortable as possible in their final few days.
Every £20 raised will pay for an hour of nursing care Ė which it is completely free to patients and their families.
