Red Nose Day was a smashing success
Several of our Vantage Black Sticks Women’s players took part in the annual Red Nose Day. Our Women’s team have been Cure Kids ambassadors for the past year and relished the opportunity to get down to some local schools and help raise funds for research into child health conditions.
Red Nose Day helps fund several areas of children’s health research including but not limited to childhood cancers, epilepsy, inherited heart conditions, cystic fibrosis, stillbirth, burns and many many more.
The work that Cure Kids do is significant as they are the largest funder of child health research outside of the government. Cure Kids rely on the generosity of individuals, businesses and community groups who support the day and help make a difference in these significant problems.
St Peter’s College Cambridge was treated to a coaching session at their school when Kayla Whitelock and Georgia Barnett came along to help the school expand the awareness of the day.
St Peters Red Nose Day ambassadors Anneliese Leamy-King and Riley Winiata who are both keen hockey players themselves were instrumental in making the day an incredible success for everyone involved.
Other schools across the country were visited by Vantage Black Sticks players Fran Davies, Rachel McCann, Holly Pearson and Megan Hull. McCann was even said to help the kids on her visit with their TikTok’s an area of speciality of hers.
