Burnley Mayor’s charity cricket match declared a huge success
The first ever Burnley Mayor’s charity cricket match has been declared a huge success.
The event took place at Stonyhurst College in Clitheroe and featured teams made up of local councillors, faith leaders, community activists and youngster.
Kits were sponsored by ANW Architects, and it was Coun. Anwar’s team who came out on top following a hard-fought contest.
He said: "We are grateful to the headmaster at Stonyhurst and the Mayor of the Ribble Valley for granting us permission to play the match.
"It was a fun way of bringing everyone together for a good cause. It was a great day. Initially we thought it would be a one off, but following the success there have been calls to make it an annual event. I'm on a hat-trick, so already looking forward to the next one.”
