SOUTHWATER Netball Club has netted a £250 sport award for new kit from UK Power Networks.

Tracey Hawthorne, a financial accountant for the electricity delivery firm, nominated her club for her employer’s Team Sport Award to buy team-mates a new team kit.

Tracey, who lives in Southwater and works in Hazelwick Avenue, Crawley, said: “We were ecstatic to win the award because we have been wearing various styles of old kit for ages.

“We haven’t all had matching tops up until now and it is great to turn up at matches looking more professional.

“It is also a big confidence boost when we are playing against other teams.”

The Team Sport Award scheme is run by UK Power Networks to encourage staff to volunteer in the community and is aimed at promoting healthy living, teamwork and development of sporting opportunities.
