A MEMO­RIAL cricket match has raised more than £760 for char­ity.

The event at Green­fields Sports and So­cial Club in Lough­bor­ough was the third match held in mem­ory of John Kearns, a for­mer dis­tri­bu­tion man­ager for Fisher Sci­en­tific at Lough­bor­ough.

The cricket teams were made up of Thermo Fisher Sci­en­tific em­ploy­ees and four mem­bers of John’s fam­ily. Team cap­tains were Mike Frost and Ash Gana­tra, with Ash’s team claim­ing the John Kearns Tro­phy for 2017 and Mark An­der­son win­ning the player of the match award.

Dur­ing a break in play, Amit Par­mar present- ed Bev Kearns (John’s widow) with a pho­to­graph which he had taken when he worked with John.

The event in­cluded a cake sale, raf­fle and an auc­tion of a signed Le­ices­ter City foot­ball shirt which al­to­gether has raised over £760 for Le­ices­ter­shire and Rut­land Mo­tor Neu­rone Dis­ease As­so­ci­a­tion.

Joanne Spencer, who or­gan­ised this year’s event with Dan Parkin, said: “Thank you to ev­ery­one who has played, baked, do­nated and sup­ported. The amount we have raised is in­cred­i­ble, it was a truly fan­tas­tic af­ter­noon and a great way to re­mem­ber John.”

Play­ers and sup­port­ers pic­tured at the match.
