Nostalgia - Sport in support of worthy causes
Pictured above are players from Heckington Cricket Club who donned fancy dress for a cricket match in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
The event was organised by Charles Garrett of the cricket club and Victoria Fisher of the sports and social club.
To the right we see professional snooker player Jimmy White paying a visit to the Courthouse Club in Sleaford for the venue’s charity opening night. About 80 people came along to see ‘The Whirlwind’ play eight of the town’s best players in aid of the British Red Cross and the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance – causes chosen by the Sleaford and District Snooker League and the Courthouse Club.
White would go on to win all the games, achieving a 108 break in one of them. During intervals, he chatted with spectators, signed autographs, and posed for photos.
Courthouse Club manager Anthony Wood said: “Jimmy was a real gentleman and really made our opening night really special.”
