Announcing details of the event, Phyllis O’Shea, from the Fundraising Committee of Waterford Healing Arts Trust (WHAT) and long-term member of St Anne’s Tennis Club, said “Summer is here and the sun is out, so why not come and join us for a fun social evening at St Anne’s Tennis Club and help us raise funds for the great work of Waterford Healing Arts Trust. You don’t have to be Rafa Nadal or Serena Williams to take part – anyone can sign up for a short game of tennis, a delicious barbecue and some great live music – all for a good cause.  Waterford Healing Arts Trust runs a wide range of arts programmes at University Hospital Waterford which contribute to the health and wellbeing of patients and their families.  We’re fortunate to have this wonderful organisation here in Waterford, so let’s do all we can to support them.  Our sincere thanks to St Anne’s Tennis Club for their invaluable support”.
