Cricket day in memory of Todmorden soldier
10:17am Tuesday 19th June 2012 in News
PROMOTERS of a charity Cricket match, in memory of a Todmorden soldier, are urging sports fans to stump up for tickets.
Friends of Corporal Jack Stanley, who died in April from injuries sustained while on active service in Afghanistan, have now put tickets on sale.
Jack’s Big Smash will take place at Todmorden Cricket Club on Friday from 5pm.
The 26-year-old, who attended Todmorden High School, was a keen cricketer and footballer.
He was seriously hurt during an incident in Lashkar Gah in early February and lost his fight for life at a UK hospital two months later.
Tickets are available for the fundraiser from Jack’s House pub, Gordon Rigg’s garden centre, Jay’s Hairdressers, the town’s golf club, the cricket club itself, Walsden Cricket Club and Jake’s Butty Van.
