Our latest Covid-19 Cricket Tea with a difference, to support local charities, will take place this Saturday, July 11, at Merstham Cricket Club between 2pm and 4pm.

We had fantastic support from members - and the public - on the previous four occasions we have run this. The recipients, Stripey Stork and two foodbanks, St Matthew's, Redhill and Loveworks, have been most appreciative.

Please see below the list of items that can be brought to Quality Street, where social distancing measures will be in place. We will again ask you simply to open your boot for us to take out items. Last time, we had at least one item of everything on the list.

If you cannot make it, you can also donate online at:!/DonationDetails
