Wistaston Jubilee Tennis Club held a 12-hour fund-raising ‘Tennis-athon’ on Saturday 29th June 2013. The event took place from 7:30am to 7:30pm and the organisers (Ben Reinhardt and Tony Mason) played for all 12 hours, whilst other players joined them during the day. Kev Walker from local online community radio station The Cat - http://www.thisisthecat.com/ - interviewed a club member during the event. The Tennis-athon raised over £100 for two charities - Marie Curie Cancer Care http://www.mariecurie.org.uk/ and Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research http://leukaemialymphomaresearch.org.uk/ . Co-organiser Ben Reinhardt said, "A big thank you to the helpers, players, spectators, The Cat and donators who supported the day. It really was much appreciated as every penny helps in the work that the two charities do in saving lives and helping those affected by these illnesses."
