Cricket club goes into bat for Arundel hospice
11:42am Monday 22nd July 2013 in News
A CHILDREN’S hospice has been bowled over by support from a cricket club.
Roffey Cricket Club near Horsham is aiming to raise as much money as possible for Chestnut Tree House near Arundel.
It made a start by unveiling a new 8ft boundary board advertising the hospice at the edge of its ground so it can be seen by all spectators at matches.
The board was the inspiration of club committee member and father-of-four Martin Rivers.
He heard about the charity’s work caring and supporting children with life-limiting illnesses and their families across Sussex and wanted to do what he could to help.
Mr Rivers said: “My wife and I have been so lucky that our four boys are fit and well and so we feel passionately about giving something back to those less fortunate.
“There are around 1,000 children in Sussex who have life-limiting illnesses and Chestnut Tree House can only help them if they continue to have enough money to provide their services.”
The club is planning several fundraising events, including a golf day at Mannings Heath golf club on October 18.
