Just before school restarted, Malcolm McDowell from Otley Lions came to Prince Henry’s Grammar School to present a cheque to the school to pay for some new netball posts, to support both Prince Henry’s and Otley Netball Club.

The generous £1000 donation was handed over in a socially distanced presentation on the school’s netball courts, where Otley Netball Club train every week. The club has been able to return to training outside in ‘bubbles’ in recent weeks, as England Netball issued relevant guidance. Otley Netball Club had planned to launch a junior section since they formed in 2019, but recent events meant that they had to put it on hold.

“I am delighted that the Otley Lions chose to support the new partnership between Prince Henry’s and Otley Netball Club to launch a junior girls’ netball section in Otley. The donation has allowed us to replace unusable netball goals with brand new goals ready for the relaunch of the junior section in January 2021.” Said Dave Curtis, Faculty leader for PE.
