The day started at 10am but the English summer weather decided to get involved and we had to stop for an hour for the rain to move on past.
We started again and the weather started to brighten. The games went to plan and the final started 25 minutes later then planned which wasn’t too bad. The final was played between Plymouth College and Ryan’s Renegades who ran out winners in the end.
On the day we had a cake stall which people from within the cricket club donated cakes which were sold along with teas and coffees which were on sale all day long. The food for the day was donated by club members and local companies. A big thank you was made to Ivor Dewdney pasties who donated over a 100 pasties free of charge. The match balls were also donated free of charge by Wombat Cricket. The cricket club bar was also open and the cricket club donated some of the profits to the charity.
Once all the money was collected we ended up raising £900 which I thought was great.
Handing over the cheque to Steve Wilson who sadly lost a son a few years back. From left to right : Dave Loynes (Plympton CC Treasurer) Marlene Walter (one of the 5 ladies that did all the cooker etc on the day) Myself (Organiser) Steve Wilson, Bev Walter (Scorer) and Wayne Wilson (Steve’s son)

It was such a good day and we raised some good money for a great cause.
