Ashley Giles will be at Leamington Cricket Club at the end of August for what promises to be a very enjoyable evening – and all for an excellent cause, too.
Gilo, a Bears legend who is currently the managing director of the men’s England cricket teams but who still lives in this part of the world, will be holding a Q&A with attendees, of which the purpose is to raise much needed funds for Cancer Research UK and, more specifically, for the Aylesford Unit at Warwick Hospital.
The Bears’ club journalist, and former reporter of the Birmingham Mail, Brian Halford lost his wife Mary in 2019 despite the brilliance of the staff on the Aylesford Unit. He is keen to raise as much as possible.
The evening is all set to take place on Friday, August 20, and is scheduled to begin at 6pm.
Tickets cost £25, and they include the guests’ first drink and a fish & chip supper. There is also set to be an auction as part of the evening, which will involved lots of cricket memorabilia in order to raise as much money as possible and a coaching session from the Bears’ director of cricket, Paul Farbrace.
