A charity helping youngsters to learn about cricket has boosted the spending power of three people in Spalding after a prize raffle.
Two of the top three prizewinners from a raffle organised by the Cricket Society Trust collected their winnings at Indus Indian Restaurant in Spalding just before Christmas.
I couldn’t believe it because you never expect to win these sorts of things and it was absolutely amazingCoun Harry Drury, first prize winner of The Cricket Society Trust raffle
A first prize of £1,000, put up by restaurant owner and cricket lover Manzur Hasan, was won by businessman and South Holland District Council member Harry Drury.
He said: “I couldn’t believe it because you never expect to win these sorts of things and it was absolutely amazing.
“The Cricket Society Trust is a good cause so I’m going to be making a sizeable donation back to the charity.”
Meanwhile, the second prize of £250 was won by Spalding United Football Club vice chairman Jack Goddard.
