Cricketers see pink for charity

MOOREBANK Cricket Club raised a tidy sum of $2600 for the McGrath Foundation with its Pink Stumps fund-raiser at Hammondville Oval on Saturday.

Former Australian Test fast bowler Glenn McGrath came along to meet the participating teams — Moorebank and Green Valley — for the Twenty20 match.

McGrath and his late wife, Jane, founded the McGrath Foundation in 2002. McGrath is co-founder and president of the organisation which raises much-needed funding for breast cancer research and resources and the employment of nurses.

"We raised $2600 from donations," Moorebank cricket team eighth grade player Chris Gardner said. "It was a great effort by Moorebank and Green Valley and we thank Glenn McGrath for coming along."

Green Valley won, making 140 and Moorebank replied with 130.
