We were delighted to donate a Boughton Estates and Wombat Cricket limited edition cricket bat for a local charity auction recently. The auction was for the Rotary Clubs of Kettering and Kettering Huxloe.
The bat was signed by David Gower (pictured), the cricket commentator and former cricketer who was Captain of England Cricket Team from the late 1970s to early 1990s. He is described as one of the most stylish left-handed batsmen of his era. He played 117 Test Matches and 114 One Day Internationals, scoring 8,231 and 3,170 runs respectively.
The cricket bat was one of the highlights of the auction and made a significant addition to the funds raised on the evening. The Charity Dinner is an annual fundraising event to support the local charitable organisations selected by the Rotary Clubs.
The Kettering Rotary Clubs are part of a worldwide group of some 33,000 Clubs with 1.2 million members in more than 200 countries and geographical regions. They support local and international projects and in recent years have added the Environment as a new area of focus.
