South Wootton teenager, Ryan Hudson recently held a charity cricket tournament which raised an amazing £582.50 for The Norfolk Hospice Tapping House.  Ryan, who plays for Sandringham Cricket Club wanted to arrange an event which would benefit a local charity as his extended project which was set as part of his A level studies at Hills Road 6th Form.

The day consisted of a 6 a side tournament, raffle and BBQ.  Ryan personally approached local businesses and individuals for donations of raffle prizes which consisted of a weekend car hire, meal vouchers and signed cricket merchandise from 2 of the current England team Joe Root and Ben Stokes.    

Lynn Lockheart, Director of Operations at The Norfolk Hospice said,

Ryan put in an amazing amount of work into the event.  I was lucky enough to attend on the day and I was really impressed with how organised the day was.  There was a great atmosphere and everyone clearly enjoyed themselves.  Ryan should be proud of what he achieved and we are extremely grateful that he chose The Norfolk Hospice.
