Se­niors take hon­ours in char­ity day

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

IT MIGHT have felt like au­tumn – or even win­ter – for much of this Bank Hol­i­day week­end, but of­fi­cially it is still cricket sea­son and Hare­field Cricket Club’s char­ity fun day got the best day of the lot.

Two teams from the club – the se­niors and its foot­ball sec­tion – took on a team from the pub across the road, The Spot­ted Dog, on Sun­day at the club in Break­s­pear Road North.

For the record the se­niors won the day but, more im­por­tantly, the event has raised about £1,500 so far, with cash still be­ing counted and do­na­tions still to come.

A raf­fle held at The Spot­ted Dog raised a fur­ther £350, plus a do­na­tion from one of the reg­u­lars of £150.

All the money will go to the Make A Wish foun­da­tion, which works with chil­dren with life-lim­it­ing and ter­mi­nal ill­nesses.

On the day there was also a bar­be­cue and hog roast, raf­fle, beat the goalie com­pe­ti­tion, bouncy cas­tle and wet sponge stocks, while in the even­ing ska band The Icon­ics took to the stage.

“We’d like to thank ev­ery­one who came and made the day an ab­so­lute smash for the sec­ond year run­ning,” said Mel Da­z­ley of Hare­field Cricket Club.

“See you all again next year.”
