Hollingworth CC to hold fundraiser for little Lottie Simpson
Tuesday 7th August 2018 @ 11:49 by Mark Phillip

In a bid to raise funds for a life changing operation, Hollingworth Cricket Club is hosting a match on Sunday, September 9.

The game is taking place to raise funds for little Lottie Simpson, who suffers from cerebral palsy and desperately needs an operation to cut the affected nerves in her spine and free her from spasticity and pain.

Unfortunately, the operation is not funded by the NHS and will therefore cost £60,000. The money will go towards the operation itself, plus a three week stay in Alder Hey Hospital, subsequent physiotherapy and home equipment.

A JustGiving page has so far raised £35,000 towards the operation.

The cricket match, which will start at 11am, will be contested between Lottie’s XI and a Hollingworth XI. There will also be children’s games, BBQ, tombola and buffet.
