Charity match raises the bat
MORE than $2000 was raised for the Motor Neurone Disease Foundation Australia on Saturday at a charity cricket match organised by Matt Boswell.
The weather was fine and all the players showed up for what was a fun and friendly game of 20/20 cricket.
Earlier this year, one of Mr Boswell’s closest friends lost his father to motor neurone disease.
As a member of the Koonwarra Leongatha RSL Cricket Club, he decided to use his passion for the sport to host a fundraiser for MND research.
Held at the Leongatha Town cricket ground, the day was a success.
The day included a friendly game of 20/20 cricket, children’s activities, a giant sausage sizzle and live entertainment which carried on into the night.
Mr Boswell hoped the event raised awareness as well as much needed funds for the MND Foundation.
