IT WILL be a serendipitous start to the 2013/14 T20 Tamworth cricket competition on October 25.
The local association and the Serendipity committee are working together to host the Redimix sponsored match at No.1 Oval, featuring representative players from across the region.
Serendipity vice-president Trina Constable said the biannual event was key to its ongoing work raising funds for local cancer patients and promoting breast health awareness.
“October is Breast Health Awareness Month and we want to use this event to get our message out to the widest possible audience,” she said.
“The match will be quality cricket supporting a terrific cause – local money for local people.”
Mitch Power and Nick Leyden will captain the two sides and sponsors for each player are now being finalised.
Cricket association president Richard Bullock said they were right behind the initiative.
“As a group, the cricketers all have an interest in breast health – we all have a mum, wife, sister, daughter and friend who may one day need this support, and we hope to see an increase in health awareness while enjoying our favourite sport, cricket,” he said.
The match will be open to the public for a gold-coin donation, or tickets, which went on sale yesterday, can be purchased for a VIP experience in the licensed and catered Serendipity Marquee from 5.30pm.
There’ll even be a VIP afterparty for guests, with live music at the Post Office Hotel.
Tickets to the
marquee can be purchased from Destination Tamworth or online from www.visittamworth.com
