Bid to play in charity 'T20' Chris Read XI v Adam Voges XI
Cricket fans once again have the exclusive opportunity to bid
for the chance to play with Chris Read and Adam Voges as they go
head to head in this annual fundraiser for Bowel Cancer UK.
Members of the public can place a minimum bid of £100 for one of
a limited number of places. As well as a chance to take part in and
watch the match, there will be gourmet food available and
entertainment for all the family.
English cricketer Chris Read said "This match promises to be an
amazing day for keen cricketers and their families. It's also a
chance to raise awareness of the disease and funds for Bowel Cancer
UK. Bowel cancer often affects men, yet many don't bother having
the signs and symptoms checked out. So please bid generously!"
Captain Chris Read hopes to raise £10,000 from this year's
match, with funds going to the charity to help raise awareness of
the symptoms of the disease. If you would like to help Chris reach
