Maldon: Cricketer's memorial charity ready to help sporting talent and terminally ill
12:00pm Saturday 31st August 2013 in News
Fundraisers are looking to help young sports people and terminally ill residents to benefit from money raised in a young cricketer’s memory.
The David Randall Foundation was launched in April to honour Maldon Cricket Club player David, who died in July last year aged just 27 following a battle with bowel cancer.
Former team-mate Alistair Cook is the charity’s patron.
Its aim is to provide scholarships to talented young people aged 12 to 25 who demonstrate exceptional dedication and passion in pursuing their ambitions in sport or music but may be held back by their financial situation.
It also supports people in the district who have terminal illness for whom extra support would give opportunities to enjoy life to the full for as long as possible.
Recent fundraisers included a concert by the Plume Adult Music School (PAMS), which raised more than £900, and last Sunday, Maldon Cricket Club held the third Rock Up For Randall at Drapers Farm.
