7 ways to spend 10p: the amount that cost Central High a netball final
You may have read this week that Central High School’s netball teams missed out on a place in a national final for the sake of 10p.
Each school is charged an affiliation fee of £24.10 to compete in the tournament run by England Netball. In 2011 Central High only paid £24 and were put on a debtors list.
They were unaware of their mistake until two of their netball teams made it to the national finals and were told they could not compete.
Upon realising, the school paid the remaining fee, but has been told the teams are still unable to compete.
JesmondLocal’s education correspondent Alice Madgwick went out into Newcastle to see what she could buy for a netball team’s worth of 10ps.
