Leicestershire CCC held a very special evening to celebrate the remarkable achievements of Matt Boyce and Rob Taylor.
Matt and Rob recently completed inspirational feats from one end of the country to the other. Matt walked from John O’Groats to Land’s End while Rob completed a bike ride in the opposite direction.
Matt was raising money and awareness mental health charity MIND and the PCA Benevolent Fund while Rob, his father Olly, brother Harry and family friend Will Goodwin rode in the other direction for Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide (SOBS).
There was a Question and Answer session with Matt and Rob conducted by Will Jefferson, which provided a fascinating insight into the challenges they faced.
Will read out heartwarming messages of thanks from the charities involved and the players were warmly applauded by everybody. We raised £507 in total on the night. The money will be split between the three charities.
Leicestershire CCC would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who came along and we wish all members and supporters a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
