Reed Cricket Club raised nearly £500 for charity at it’s club open day on Sunday.
The money was raised for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY), with the club looking to host a cardiac screening day in the future. By doing so, many local young people will get the opportunity to attend and have simple but very important tests on their heart. P
Club president Andrew Emms said: “Every week in the UK, 12 apparently fit and healthy young aged 35 and under die from undiagnosed cardiac conditions. If we can leave no stone unturned in Reed and surrounding area then brilliant”
The day itself was a success, with nearly 40 players consisting of members, their friends, family and colleagues.
Coach co-ordinator Richard Barlow said: “A few weeks ago I was planning a one-off friendly game, but thanks to great support, it grew to a tournament and we raised a lot more than expected.”
