Saint Catherine’s has received a generous donation of £1,200 from the team at Scalby Cricket Club.
The club was aiming to raise around £500 through sponsored kit including shirts and hoodies, which were offered to team members for a donation.
The kit was kindly sponsored by the Nags Head pub in Scalby and features their logo on the front, with a ‘proud to support Saint Catherine’s’ logo on the back.
Scalby Cricket Club chairman Daniel Gregory said: “We were absolutely delighted to more than double our target of £500 and raise over £1,000 for Saint Catherine’s Hospice.
“This wouldn’t have been possible without the phenomenal support of James and Stacey at the Nags Head in Scalby. Their generous backing has made this donation possible so a huge thank you to them both for their continued support.”
James Durham, landlord of the Nags Head added: “Supporting both our local cricket club with their new tops and also helping raise funds for Saint Catherine’s Hospice was a no-brainer. Myself and Stacey were delighted to offer our support.”
Susan Stephenson, communications and marketing manager at Saint Catherine’s, said: “We are thrilled to receive this generous donation, which will go towards looking after patients both in the hospice and their own homes. We can only do what we do at Saint Catherine’s with the help of our wonderful supporters in the community, so we’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Scalby Cricket Club and the Nags Head.”
