Nearly 10 years ago my youngest daughter, Lois, was coached by best friends Becky Giles & Sarah Williams for U14 Worcestershire County Netball. I firmly believe it was the enthusiasm of these two young ladies that sparked the desire in her to train hard & play well.
Lois went on to captain County U16's, West Mids Warriors U19's & U21's & play for Bath U21 whilst at university. She played for Sarah's team, Saracens, at Regional League but now plays for Becky's team, Worcester Reds, in Prem League 1.
Lois & I are both Level 2 coaches and coach County U12's. I am currently working towards by B award for umpiring & I play local league netball in Worcester & Kidderminster. If it wasn't for Becky & Sarah I am sure we would not be so involved in netball.
Sadly, back in August 2016, at just 34 yrs young, Becky lost her long battle with cancer & it's in her memory that I am Braving the Shave to raise money for Macmillan & Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.
