30th August 2010
On Bank Holiday Monday, between 200 and 300 people attended our Charity cricket match held for Dale Tennent-Butler’s memorial fund; all monies raised have been sent to CRY.
On the day we had lots of photos of Dale and CRY patrons – and balloons – adorning the cricket club. The ladies’ game was a fun event, many of us were bruised and full of aches and pains, but it was worth it!
Lots of families had a picnic and there was a barbecue for those who didn’t cater for themselves.
The raffle was a huge success raising lots of money. There were some brilliant prizes including a TV; a notebook PC; and a snooker cue signed by Steve Davis.
We sold lots of wristbands to everyone and many of Dale’s friends arrived in the afternoon (all straight back from Reading festival). We raised £1100 by selling raffle tickets and wristbands.
After the raffle there was some live music from ‘Jack and Luke’ – friends of the family. It was a brilliant end to a great day. There was no rain and lots of happy people.
We intend to repeat the event next year for sure. We would like to thank all of our wonderful friends and family for their continued support.
