Last year 2019 was another record-breaking year for New Life. Through a range of new and established events and with the incredible generosity from our volunteers and supporters, the total rasied was a whopping £123,245.
One of our largest sources of income is from the many events organised by our amazing volunteers. We think there really is something for everyone. You can take your pick and take part in the many sporting challenges and activities that we host such as Tennis, Golf, Cycling, Canoeing, Swimming or Walking. If sport is not your thing you can help us by joining in and having fun at our social events held throughout the year.
Annual Golf Day
Our Annual Golf Day was our very first large event, raising £7,500 25 years ago, rising steadily to a staggering £24,000 in 2019. Hosted at the wonderful Donnington Valley Golf Club every year, this remains ever popular with our regular supporters and we are eternally grateful for their continual support.
24 Hour Tennis Marathon - or the Sport-a-thon in 2020
Our very first 24 hour Tennis Marathon raised £17,000 in 2018 and supported by BBC presenter Mike Bushell another staggering £25,300 in 2019! Hosted at David Lloyd Newbury, 384 tennis hours were played.
In 2020 we are going to make this event bigger and better than ever, and it will be rebranded the Sport-a-thon. We've decided to expand it so even more people can take part with their favourity activity whether it be swimming, cycling or of course tennis!
