Hoping to hit through a few boundaries during NHS charity match at Hagley Cricket Club

A CRICKET match between two teams of NHS staff from the Midlands will take place to raise funds for healthcare charities.

The event, from 11.15am to 4pm on September 5 at Hagley Cricket Club, will generate cash for University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust and The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, along with the charities which support them.

All funds raised from the event will be split equally between University Hospitals Birmingham Charity, which supports Queen Elizabeth, Heartlands Good Hope and Solihull Hospitals and The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Charity and will go towards improving services for children and young patients at both trusts.

There will be plenty of family fun, including a bouncy castle, face painting, food, drink and ice cream and a raffle.

Among the prizes will be a one-night stay with breakfast and afternoon tea at Birmingham’s Park Regis, £50 Chung Ying restaurant vouchers, Cadbury World Family Pass, £100 Gym Shark voucher, Philips electronic products and more.

A silent auction will also be held for items such as afternoon tea for two at The Ritz in London, a cricket shirt signed by England batsman Jason Roy and a bat autographed by Sussex Cricket Club.

Fund-raising revenue for The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Charity is down £25,000 after so many events were cancelled because of the pandemic.

Anyone wanting to volunteer on the day or contribute a raffle prize should call the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Charity Fund-raising Team on 0121 685 4379.

Tickets for the match are £2 per adult and £1 per child (under 4s are free). Family tickets (two adults and two children) are £5.

Doors open at 10.30am.
