Netballers dress the part for a worthy cause

PLAYERS, coaches and committee members of Woolgoolga District Netball Association donned coloured socks and crazy hair-dos last Saturday as part of Crazy Hair and Sock Day.

Netballers took to the courts wearing colourful hair, wacky headpieces and novelty socks to raise funds for The Kids' Cancer Project, a charity partner of Netball New South Wales.

Woolgoolga District Netball Association treasurer and coach, Nicole Grant, said the event was a wonderful way to raise money while having fun.

"This is the first year that we've actually done this sort of thing and it was a great idea to get the entire club involved," Ms Grant said.

"It's a fun thing for the kids to dress up with the crazy hair and socks, but also great to be able to raise money for a very worthwhile cause.

"Everybody had a great day and it was good to see not just the kids but the committee get really involved."

The Netball Association collected a total $204 in donations to go towards children's cancer research.
