Rain doesn’t dampen success at charity cricket match

Clacton cricket match

Despite the British weather doing its best to stop play, the rain didn’t dampen the success of the Clacton charity cricket match last month.

The event, which saw an EEAST team battle it out against charity Relay for Life, raised a fantastic £816.50 for Cancer Research and The Brain Tumour Charity – well done everyone!

Weeley-based Paramedic Iain, who organised the match, said: “Sadly the rain did finish the game early, but the Relay for Life Team did manage to complete their innings, scoring 98 runs.

“The pick of the ambulance team’s bowlers was a mesmerising Cliff, taking two wickets, and the balletic Joshua, whose bowling was enjoyed by the opposition batsmen! The highlight of our fielding was Rob’s decision to use his shins instead of his hands - leaving him bruised and battered for the cause!

“After four overs of the EEAST’s innings the heavens opened, curtailing a fine effort with the bat by ‘Top Gun’ Iain.

“Thank you to everyone who got involved or came along, it was an evening enjoyed by all.”
