Impressive netball skills were on show in Helensburgh for a charitable cause in the Christian Aid Primary Schools Netball Tournament.

The annual event took place at Lomond School Sports Hall on Wednesday, June 5 and saw eight local primary schools raise money for Christian Aid.

Pupils from Lomond School, St Joseph’s Primary School, Cardross Primary School, Arrochar Primary School, Hermitage Primary School, Rhu Primary School, John Logie Baird Primary School and Colgrain Primary School all took part.

The event was supported by the G84 Netball club, who helped with scoring, timing, and providing umpires.

The final match was closely contested, going into extra time with Lomond emerging victorious over St Joseph’s.

Ailsa Lawn, head of junior school at Lomond School, expressed her pride in seeing the schools engage in such an enjoyable tournament and commended all the participating children.

She said: "All eight teams performed admirably, making it a fantastic evening while raising funds for Christian Aid. All the schools played well and each participant displayed excellent netball skills and sportsmanship."

Money raised will go towards helping Christian Aid’s goal of aiming to end poverty and injustice around the world.
