    Story

    Crazy Cricket

    Updates: **ING Bank have kindly agreed to match fund donations up to £2,000**

    **The raffle raised £234.50 in total** These are both in addition to the justgiving total above.

    On Friday 1 September 2017, players from Kingstonian Cricket Club, Lambeth Council, MOJ CC and some other ringers played in a special charity cricket match at the world famous Oval cricket ground in Kennington as part of a Pro Play Sports tournament.

    Money will be split between two worthy causes.

    Chance to Shine is a charity which is bringing cricket to thousands more young people in inner- city areas. It uses the game to increase aspiration, promote social cohesion and create opportunities in diverse communities affected by youth crime and anti-social behaviour. chancetoshine.org

    Mental Health Mates is a peer support group for people with mental health issues. First set up in London by author Bryony Gordon, this small group provides regular meet-ups for people with mental health issues, where they could walk and talk without fear of judgement. It's mission is to expand and provide supportive groups nation-wide. mentalhealthmates.co.uk

    Thank you so much for your generous donation! Once admin costs are covered all monies raised will be split between the two groups.
