It was sooooo very cold on February 24th. Snowflakes were seen but it was probably too cold to snow anyway! How the chaps managed to go out and play, catch, bowl, even talk, it was just amazing! (or ridiculous?).
We were so very grateful they did though. It means the traditional of the February Cricket Match goes on and we continue to raise much needed funds for the Royal Marsden Cancer Hospital.
Jack Whitehall got his timings a little awry but he was a great sport when he turned up. Bidding at a last minute auction for a ton of golf balls, even though he claimed not to play golf!
After drawing the Grand Raffle, Jack admitted to coming down to the Bank of England Sports Club, for the Feb Fools Match, to collect autographs from the likes of Chris Tarrant! Chris, of course, was captaining again, and hardly complained about the cold, at all. Such a stalwart!
Huge thanks to all involved. Same again next year!
