Benevolent Fund


The Benevolent game against the County at Faringdon on Wednesday 29th May was played in good spirits and, for the most part, gentle rain.
The Benevolent side were well beaten but, more importantly, the amount raised for the Fund was an excellent £594.
Thank you the RCBBA for allowing us to play this game and for all your members who played in it and supported our charity.
Our grateful thanks to Trevor Durrant and the Faringdon Club for all the work he and his club members put in to make the day a success.
