Cricket club's tenth anniversary summer ball

ALMOST 200 people attended a black tie summer ball to raise money for Henley Cricket Club.

ALMOST 200 people attended a black tie summer ball to raise money for Henley Cricket Club.

The event was held at a marquee on the Henley Royal Regatta site and was attended by players, officials and their friends and families.

It included a champagne reception, three-course meal, raffle and performances by Replica Radio and former Stranglers singer Paul Roberts. David Winter, chairman of fund-raising at the club, said: ?It was the 10th anniversary of the event and by all accounts everyone had a fabulous time.

?The marquee looked great when it was full of people and the band was fantastic. People donated very generously in the raffle. It?s great that businesses supported us by donating prizes as did people by buying them.?

Money raised from the evening goes towards paying off the remaining £66,000 of the loan from Henley Town Council used to help to buy the Brakspear Ground in 2005.

The club?s next fund-raising event will be at Phyllis Court on October 9 when former England spinner Phil Tuffnell will be the guest speaker.
