A disabled persons’ charity are drawing up an impressive batting order for their second annual cricket match at Harpenden cricket club, after being knocked for six by a £500 donation.
Hertfordshire Action on Disability, based in Welwyn Garden City, received the yorker of a sum from the Jarvis Charitable Trust.
HAD fundraiser Paul Bishop said: “For many of the players this will be the highlight of their season. For them to play in front of a big crowd would make it even better.”
The public game, being held on Sunday, August 6, will see top disabled cricketers, some with learning difficulties, coming to the crease.
Hip amputee Chris Foster, 27, from Bishop’s Stortford, does not use a prosthetic limb, instead hopping in to bowl at 70mph.

Paul said: “Chris’s performance was definitely one of the highlights of the day and all the spectators were asking who he was.”
