A FUNDRAISER hosted by Carnforth Cricket Club has seen hundreds of pounds raised in honour of a beloved local resident.

£700 was raised in memory of David for St John’s Hospice with the David Law Pub Knockouts charity games which saw several local teams play in friendly cricket matches on May 28.

Organised by his son Liam, the day also included a raffle and a BBQ.

Liam has thanked the club for hosting the event and credited the staff and volunteers who helped to put on the knockout fundraiser.

He said: “My dad used to do the pub knockout competitions between the pubs in Carnforth, Warton and Millhead.

“They would play cricket and the winners would then play each other until there was a final.

“This was a good day with a great raffle and BBQ. It got together some much needed funds for the hospice of £700.

“We had a lot of people turn out. A few hundred.

“The hospice were very grateful and we’ll be handing over the cheque to them soon.

“In the cricket matches it was Carnforth Rangers who won in the end. Footballers beating everyone at cricket.

“The whole day felt very emotional, and overwhelming. It’s nice to see so many people still think about my dad and are willing to support the hospice.”
