Seniors take honours in charity day
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.”
