Basketball-a-thon

Basketball-a-thon

On Tuesday 30th October students at Torpoint Community College held their first basketball-a-thon. Challenging themselves to maintain one game of basketball for 12 hours, the students were fundraising to develop the outdoor basketball facilities at the College. Starting at 9 am at the Torpoint and Rame Sports Centre, everyone involved worked collaboratively to create a fantastic atmosphere and students successfully completed their 12 hours at 9 pm with the support of Plymouth Raiders, TCC teachers, YMCA staff and parents and carers. A high standard of basketball was on show throughout the event and the black team eventually triumphed over the reds 395 points – 367 points. With over £300 raised thus far through the event the students at Torpoint Community College have once again demonstrated their determination and commitment. Thank you to everyone who generously donated both their time and money towards the event. Any future donations towards this project would still be gratefully received.
