Cricket fans have been supporting local charities every time Devon play a county game at Sidmouth, writes Conrad Sutcliffe.

For the last three summers county officials and charity volunteers have been manning a stand by the entrance to the ground selling raffle tickets.

The four county games played at Sidmouth this summer have raised more than £1200 – taking the grand total to around £2500.

The money has been disbursed to a number of charities in the Sid Valley, among them the Admiral Nurse Appeal.

Adrian Ford from the appeal said Devon should be applauded for their community spiritedness.

“We really appreciate the on-going support that we receive from Devon County Cricket,” said Ford.

“In addition to raising funds for our Admiral Nurse Campaign, it also helps us to keep the campaign in the public eye and remind everyone that we need to continue raising £50,000 every year to fund an Admiral Nurse here in the Sid Valley.”

Devon played Dorset at Sidmouth earlier this week and the raffle raised around £240.

The prize draw was made by Andrew Moulding, the chairman of East Devon District Council and a well-known cricket lover, assisted by Devon CCC patron David Fursdon and Trish Ford from the Admiral Nurse Appeal.
