Stumping up cash for charity at cricket match

(L-R) Dudley Council chief executive, Kevin O'Keefe; Cllr David Stanley, Mayor of Dudley; Councillor Mohammed Hanif and Harilal Patel, from Stourbridge Cricket Club.

Council staff and councillors in Dudley will be hoping to bowl over two charities at a special cricket match.

The two teams will be going head to head at Stourbridge Cricket Club on August 2nd and are hoping to stump up cash for the Mayor of Dudley’s charities - Macmillan Cancer Support and The Wildlife Trust.

The teams will play in a 20-overs-a-side match at the Memorial Ground, Amblecote, before a raffle and an auction. Councillor David Stanley, Mayor of Dudley, said:

"The annual cricket match between members and officers is always good fun and raises some much needed funding for charity as well. Members and officers give up their time to help these good causes, something that will make a difference to both charities.

"A huge thank you to Stourbridge Cricket Club for hosting us again this year too.”

Members of the public are welcome to attend the match which starts at 6pm. For more information on the Mayor’s charities, you can visit
