THE Rastrick Gentlemen Spoofers proved they are not stumped for ideas when it comes to fundraising for charity.

The veterans’ team based at Rastrick Cricket Club raised a total of £2,200 for the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice near Brighouse.

The money was raised at a cricket day at Rastrick and a golf day at Castlefields Golf Club.

Spoofers’ chairman Mark Edley: “We had some great support for both events and fantastic raffle prizes were given including a holiday in Malaga.

“The main organiser Scott Wood and team captain Damian Roebuck worked very hard to make both events a success and we are glad to help such a worthwhile local charity. We try to put on events for the whole family to enjoy.”

The Spoofers are now planning their next major event - a black tie dinner in February.

l The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice at Brackenhall is opening its doors for a family fun day on Saturday, November 5 from 10am-4pm.

The event will celebrate the landmark completion of the new hospice after 12 years of fundraising.

There will be games, family activities and the opportunity to tour the building and meet the care team including head of care Margaret Wadsworth.
