Rainhill will host a charitable cricket match in aid of the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) on Sunday 21st July.
CALM is a nationwide suicide-prevention charity, which also supports families affected by suicide and promotes good mental health.
Rainhill’s Sunday XI, captained by Joe Crossley, will take on a “Merseyside Marauders XI” skippered by another of Rainhill’s Sunday team, Andrew Page. Andrew’s side will contain players from St John’s United Reformed Church in Warrington (which has a history of associations with suicide-prevention charities) as well as various volunteers including Joe Worrall (who refereed the 1989 FA Cup final between Liverpool and Everton).
The primary aim of the match is to raise money for CALM and increase awareness of issues surrounding suicide. We also hope to be able to put on a friendly and entertaining game of cricket.
The bar will be open from 4.30pm onwards and a special match programme will be available. Following the match there will be a brief presentation and potentially also an auction of memorabilia.
All are welcome to attend and support the event. There are also places available in both teams for anyone (of any age, gender or ability!) who would like to enjoy an afternoon of recreational cricket. If you’d like to play, or for more information, please contact Andrew on 01744 452558 or at email@example.com
