CRICKET fans are urged to pitch in and support the Mayor of Dudley’s charities at an annual match.

A team of Dudley Council officers will be taking on members in a 20-over a side match for the Mayor of Dudley’s charities.

Teams will go head to head at Stourbridge Cricket Club on Friday June 28 at 6pm.

All proceeds will go to White House Cancer Support, Dudley, and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

Councillor Alan Finch, Mayor of Dudley, said: “It will be a great night of entertainment and hopefully we can raise some much needed money for two very worthwhile causes. I hope to see lots of people there on the night cheering the teams on.”

The event will also include a raffle with top prizes up for grabs as part of the fundraiser.

Dudley Council set up Team DB last year, which encourages council officers to join together to raise money for the Mayor’s charities in a range of sporting events.

The team has already raised thousands of pounds for charity through football, cricket, cycling and bowls events.
