Fifth GamesAid cricket festival raises its bat

The fifth annual GamesAid cricket match took place at Kew Cricket club last week with four games industry teams contesting for the 10-10 challenge cup.

A Sega XI led by John Clark, Lord Hatch’s invitational XI, Doron Garfunkel’s All Star XI and Ian Livingstone’s Pirates competed in a splendid day of sunshine and flannelled foolery.

A brand new name was also engraved on the venerable old trophy as the Pirates narrowly beat the All Stars in a closely fought final.

Yet GamesAid, as always, was the true winner with over £2000 raised on the day bringing the total raised in the five years of the tournament to over £10,000.

A crack team from Action 4 Kids also joined in the fun, coming down to take in many fine examples of play and many not so – and handing out several welcome though perhaps non-standard awards including Best Legs and Closest Ronan Keating lookalike.

Winners were rewarded with some rather delicious Action 4 Kids cakes at lunch.

With a picture worth a thousand words, we’ll leave you with a fine selection of splendid photos from the day, secure in the knowledge that £2200 was raised for GamesAid supported charities.
