PUBLISHED: 11:00 26 June 2020
Three Harold Wood Cricket Club members took on a mammoth cycling challenge to raise much-needed funds last Friday.
Harry Thompson, Ed Smith and Craig Sampson cycled from Harold Wood Park to Lord’s Cricket Ground in St John’s Wood, then over to the Kia Oval in Kennington, before returning to club headquarters.
The trio covered over 60 miles in the process, raising money for the club which has suffered without any play so far during the 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic.
