Martha Dismont, the executive director of Family Centre, was joined by Jordan DeSilva, the Somerset captain, and Neil Paynter, the St George’s Cricket Club president, for the event.

Mr Burt said: “I want to thank all of the volunteers and staff at Family Centre for their hard work and wish them a Happy Cup Match.”
