A cricket match that took place between the Alconbury Village and Alconbury Weston teams raised more than £3,000 for The Glyn Fund.

On Sunday August 30, Alconbury Weston won the match with a score of 158 beating Alconbury Village by just one run.

A fundraising raffle had been running and helped to raise £3320 for fund, a charity which was started in memory of Glyn Faulkner who died 11 years ago.

Another 22 prizes have been given out, including a £100 voucher from the Alconbury Nisa shop.

Organiser, Andrew Turner, who is Glynn’s cousin said: “I thought £1,000 was achievable, to be here now with £3,320 is unbelievable and a little overwhelming.

“But myself, the team and the community did it for our Glyn, it’s his 40th birthday next year, dig deep!
