Fun Fundraising for Barbados

Simon Roche, Master i/c Cricket, writes: Although it is usual for cricketers to hibernate in the winter, the last few weeks has been a hive of activity for the Cricket Club. They are touring to Barbados this half term, and in order to raise funds for the tour they have been busy on a couple of ventures. Firstly was their tour dinner, which was well attended by the tour party, current parents, former parents, members of the common room and by lots of Martyrs Cricketers. The guests were treated to an after dinner speech from Devon Malcom (former England fast bowler), Kevin Emery (formerly Hampshire CCC) and Steve Kirby (formerly England Lions). Then, last weekend, the boys undertook a sponsored run to Sandhurst Royal Military Academy. They completed much of the distance at Teddies whilst carrying “Colin the injured Cricketer” a ‘guy’ made up in full St Edward’s cricket kit. At the Sandhurst end the boys ran mile legs into the academy, and ran the last mile up the Sandhurst drive as a team. They were greeted by Colonel Bazeley (current parent) and Officer Cadet Georgie McHardy OSE, who then gave the boys a full tour of Sandhurst. It was a real teambuilding experience and successfully raised much needed funds for the tour. Our thanks to the Bazeleys for arranging the venture. Next stop: Barbados.
