HOWZAT! Holmesfield Cricket Club has raised more than £3,000 for our patient care.
The Stuart Huckerby Memorial Cricket Match was played in memory of club member Stuart, who died earlier this year.
Along with Club President Tom Pearson, Stuart had inspired and encouraged young players to take up the game, many of whom still play and recently finished the cricket season by taking the club into the Derbyshire County Cricket League - Second Division.
Covid restrictions meant that Stuart’s family couldn’t give him the send off they would have liked following his death in March so the cricket match was an opportunity for everybody who knew and loved him to raise a glass, share anecdotes and stories and enjoy a match which raised a total of £3,091 for St Luke’s Hospice, where Stuart was a patient.
“We are so pleased that Stuart’s family and friends were able to give him the tribute he deserved,” said our Senior Fundraising Manager Clare Collingworth.
“Not only did they have a great time but they also raised a great amount for us, money that will help us to continue providing our services for all the people of Sheffield and their families.”
