Swalwell Cricket Club organised a Charity Cricket Match on 2 September to raise funds for FACT.  The bowling was opened by FACT’s Patron John Beresford, who did very well considering he is used to kicking a ball !  The weather was as scorching as the play !  Spectators enjoyed good cricket and raised money by participating on the various stalls and the raffle.  Overall the day raised a staggering £1,291.50 which will help the charity to support local people affected by cancer.  Many thanks to Swalwell Cricket Club for choosing FACT to benefit from this event and well done to everyone involved in organising, setting up and running the event.  Can we book in the late summer sun for next year’s event!!!

For Football fans FACT Patron John Beresford is doing a Football Talk In on 8th Feb, at Swalwell Cricket Club.  Tickets cost £10 and includes a pie and pea supper.  Give us a call to book  your tickets.
