All money raised will go to Oswestry children’s charity Hope House
A Shropshire netball team hit a team of cricketers for six as they raised vital cash for an Oswestry charity in a special netball match sponsored by Shrewsbury legal practice Aaron & Partners.
The Hunters netball team, which plays in the Shropshire County League, took on an all male team from Cound Cricket Club in the fundraiser, with almost 200 pounds going to children’s charity Hope House.
And unsurprisingly, the netball team came out on top, beating their inexperienced opposition 44-5.
The cricketers, who play in the top division of the Shropshire Cricket League, have vowed to take revenge when the sides meet again in the summer – this time at rounders.
Aaron & Partners Solicitor Zoe Lloyd, who is part of the firm’s Corporate and Commercial team, was part of the Hunters team.
“It was a brilliant event that everyone seemed to really enjoy and the game was definitely played in the right spirit,” said Zoe.
“The game itself was a little one-sided but we didn’t want to gloat too much because we know it’s likely to be a bit closer when we meet at rounders in the summer!
“Kenny Hamer from Cound Cricket Club had the idea for the game and on behalf of Aaron & Partners, we were really pleased to get behind it. It’s fantastic to be able to support a brilliant local charity like Hope House, which does some incredible work with children here in Shropshire and all over the county.”
The 165 pounds raised from the charity match took the total raised by Cound Cricket Club for Hope House in the past 12 months to 1,300 pounds.
