Ty Hafan

Yesterday we finally got our cricket match in that we'd planned in aid of a local children's hospice, Ty Hafan that out cricket club Dinas Powys CC are supporting this year.

We'd initially planned this event for mid July, but the weather put paid to that, so it was re-arranged for yesterday. We had two teams made up form seniors and juniors within the club playing a match whilst on the sidelines there was the inevitable bouncy castle, a welly wanging competition, raffle, BBQ tea & cakes etc.

Despite a decent forecast it was miserable early doors, but did eventually brighten up. Sadly the poorer early weather probably kept a few who might have come along at home, but in the end we raised about £350. Not a massive amount, but decent enough, and every little helps. We'll be adding to that amount with another couple of raffles towards the end of the season and at our presentation dinner in October, so hope to have a decent cheque to hand over to Ty Hafan then.
