Bunbury's Charity Cricket Match at Box Hill School

A little bit of Harry Potter magic came to Box Hill School recently, with a celebrity-filled charity cricket match, starring the Weasley Twins amongst others. The Bunbury's took on the Headmaster's XI, in a match which saw Darren Gough bowled out by teacher Richard Parker, in the fifth ball of the first over!

The event proved very popular, with families enjoying the school's High Ropes course, along with a bouncy castle, laser quest course, range of craft stalls and of course the cricket. Students from the school helped out in manning the food stalls, and found that their crepe making skills went down very well with the crowds.

Sadly, in the end, the final score was Bunbury's 237 off 30 overs with the Headmaster's XI replying with 182 off 30 overs.

Proceeds from the event will be divided between the NSPCC, Box Hill School's chosen charity Round Square International Service Projects, which support development projects in places including Peru, South Africa and Costa Rica, and the English Schools Cricket Association which works to bring cricket into schools.
