When young cancer patient Ben was diagnosed with leukaemia, his cousin Charlie Thomas suggested his family help by raising money for CLIC Sargent.
This paved the way to a 12-hour cricket tournament, with 12 teams, made up of around 90 cricketers and a total of 400 people attending.
Ben’s mum Fiona Potkins said: “It was a wonderful family event. As well as the cricket, there was a bouncy castle, face painting, candy floss, tombola and a raffle, all contributing to a fantastic total of £1,531.17 being donated to each charity.
“It was a lovely day with so many people showing their support for us.”
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Lydia Buckmaster said: “It’s wonderful to see how families come together through difficult times to support each other.
"The cricket tournament is a lovely example of this, allowing the family to raise funds to help support children and young people with cancer. ”
