Celebrities ready for Hiscox festival

The eighth Hiscox Celebrity Cricket Festival will be held tomorrow at the North Field, National Sports Centre.

The festival, which starts with the 11-and-under League Skills and Drills Tournament at 8.30am, is designed to celebrate community-based youth cricket and to raise money for the Bermuda Cricket Board youth programmes.

The celebrities taking part include the Governor, George Fergusson, Michael Dunkley, the Premier, Jimmy Spithill, the America's Cup sailor, and John Layfield, the former WWE wrestler.

The All-star game between the celebrities and under-11s will start at noon.

Thirty players representing 15 clubs, including three females, will make up the under-11 team.

Once again, the annual BCB raffle will be drawn on the day. All proceeds will go towards the BCB Youth Development programme, which provides free cricket opportunities to Bermuda's youth, reaching boys and girls aged 5 to 19. The raffle tickets are $5 each and include many prizes valued at more than $1,000.

“This is a great day out for the family and I would like to encourage everyone to come out to support our boys and girls taking on the celebrities,” Lloyd Fray, the president of the BCB, said.
