Members of the Swaythling Lawn Tennis Club in Southampton have served up a donation to Wessex Cancer Trust from their annual fun tournament.

When long-standing member Dave Halcrow died of cancer in 2005, the club wanted to remember him by donation to a cancer charity. Because Wessex Cancer Trust had supported him and his wife Jenny, members set up a fun tournament where participants enjoy a strawberry cream tea during a break in play in return for a donation to us. 

Now in its 14th year, the event has raised over £1,300, equivalent to over 30 counselling sessions, to help support local people living with cancer.
