|Uplyme & Lyme Regis Cricket Club, in partnership with Candles on the Cobb, the Lyme Regis based charity which raises money for youth and other local causes, are organising a special King George Candles event to be held at the King George V Playing Fields in Uplyme. The event will be a 40 over cricket game starting at 13.00 followed, at 20.00, by the lighting of over 2000 candles around the cricket ground. People are encouraged to buy a candle “to remember somebody”.
The Candle on the Cobb Committee has agreed that the candles will be “sold” on behalf of the Sam Nunn appeal. Sam is an Uplyme youngster, who has been fighting a rare form of cancer for three years. The money raised will go towards payment for a six month course of treatment in a German clinic, the only place where this treatment is available. We aim to raise several thousand pounds.
The event is generously sponsored by: By the Bay, Lyme Bay Holidays, Pinhay Residential Home for the Elderly, River Cottage, Town Mill Cheesemonger and Uplyme Village Stores.
In addition to the game of cricket, there will be stalls and entertainment around the ground with refreshments, barbeque and the cricket pavilion bar.
Candle Certificates can be bought for £2 each from the Cricket Pavilion or from:
Along Came Polly
Paul’s Barber Shop
Town Mill Cheesemonger
Rock Point Inn
Uplyme Village Stores
Please do buy a candle and try to attend this very special event. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
