Tom Allin Memorial Day at NDCC Saturday 23rd April

Dear NDCC Member/Supporter

Here are the details of the plan for the Tom Allin Memorial Day at Instow on Saturday in aid of Devon Air Ambulance. Three teams will be playing a 10 overs per side tournament. Bideford CC will be captained by Paul Heard, NDCC by Barney Huxtable and the Tom Allin XI by Chris Metters. The outline programme is as follows;

8.30am – 10.ooam Full English Breakfast available in the pavillion at £6pp

10.30am Bideford CC v North Devon CC

1pm Bideford CC v Tom Allin XI

3pm Tom Allin XI v North Devon CC

6pm Buffet meal provided by SK Catering at £5 per head for all non-players.

7.30pm Race Night in the pavilion, featuring 8 races. After the fourth race there will be an auction in aid of Devon Air Ambulance with Rob Ayre as auctioneer, with a further 4 races to follow after that.

Please do come down and support the event either during the day, for the evening or both. Sarah Kelly and her team from SK Catering will be there all day providing food and the NDCC bar will be open all day. Everyone is welcome to the buffet which will be served from 6pm at £5 per head paid for at the time of purchase.

In addition to the auction there is a raffle with some great prizes. Entry is free both to watch the cricket and to the race night. The fund raising is through the auction, the raffle and the profit from the betting on the races.

There are two purposes for the day – firstly to remember Tom and secondly to raise lots of money for Devon Air Ambulance. Please do come and be a part of it, everyone is welcome, members and non-members so spread the word and bring your friends!

I look forward to seeing you on Saturday.
