We celebrated KIKN’s first anniversary, with a charity cricket match between Bromley Town Cricket Club and the Weekenders Cricket Club, on Sunday 27 May 2012. It was a gloriously warm, sunny day, and whilst the two teams did battle there were plant, craft and cake sales, as well as children’s entertainments, grand raffle, tombola, and the club bar. We were delighted that the Mayor of Bromley, Michael Turner, agreed to formally open the proceedings, and stayed throughout the afternoon to draw the grand raffle.
We raised over £800 on the day and this has been increased to £1,000 by a generous donation from the Futures for Kids charity, to whom we extend many thanks.
We would also like to say a big ‘thank you’ to the following for making the day a great success:
Bromley Town Cricket Club for hosting the event, and providing so much support to KIKN, particularly to Amy Rowlinson, Karl Graham and Paul Jones
The Weekenders Cricket Club, for agreeing to take part in the event, and to actor Clive Swift, the cricket club’s founder, for attending and donating sales of his CD
Barry Wicks, of Bromley Football Club, for providing the rousing PA commentary
John Botten for printing publicity leaflets
Peter Downes, former KIKN Trustee, for growing and donating the plants on-sale
All KIKN friends and supporters who made and sold cakes, donated raffle prizes and tombola bottles and helped run stalls on the day
