The long walk to the pavilion was taken quite literally by a few hardy Surrey cricketers who walked from their village clubhouse to The Oval for Cricket for Change.
Eight members of South Park Manor Cricket Club raised £600 after walking 27 miles from Reigate to The Kia Oval.
Players walked through rural Surrey and into south London for seven hours and 40 minutes before reaching the home of Surrey County Cricket Club back on Sunday, April 22nd April.
South Park Manor CC's First team vice-captain, John Bullen, said future fundraising ideas are being discussed after a successful debut. He said, "We are delighted to help this fantastic cause and we’ve already been discussing ideas for the next one."
Alasdair Ramsay at Cricket for Change noted, "I was glad that for the most part the recent bad weather (at that time) stayed away. They deserved a bit of good fortune for their hard earned efforts, sore feet and blisters!
"I would like to say a huge 'thank you' on behalf of everyone at C4C. We are all very appreciative of their efforts. We look forward to growing the partnership."
Many thanks also to Surrey County Cricket Club for their support on the day.
