Hospice bowled over by support

FAMOUS faces from the world of cricket and television will come together for a fundraising cricket match on behalf of Katharine House Hospice.

On June 26, internationally-renowned cricketers Neal Radford, Neil Smith, Graham Rose and Devon Malcolm will be joined fellow celebrities – yet to be revealed – for a charity cricket match at Enstone Sports and Social Club.

The event, which has been organised by The Lord’s Taverners Thames Valley Region, will be hosted by Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden of former television series The Goodies, with Star Trek’s Sir Patrick Stewart also making a special appearance. Sarah Brennan, community fundraiser for the hospice, said: “We are really excited about this fundraiser.

“The Goodies are renowned for their hilarious mad-cap comedy and this, combined with the presence of so many household names, should be the perfect recipe for a great day’s entertainment.

“We are delighted The Lords’s Taverners have chosen the hospice to be a beneficery of the fundraiser and with daily running costs exceeding £5,000, every penny counts.”

The event will begin at noon and will be accompanied by an auction.

Lunch and tea with the celebrities costs £30 per person and spectators are welcome for a donation at the gate.
