Two Wanstead cricket club youngsters decided to play 100 consecutive days of cricket to raise money for Cancer Research UK, writes Jacob Ranson.

Jaydhan Prabhakar and Thinod Vilhan Balage Don, both 12, were supported by their friends who helped them by playing a match at Ilford Cricket Club on Saturday.

The Brentwood High School pupils were also supported by Kiran Girn from Barclays Bank Acton, who was impressed by their actions and managed to convince the bank to offer £1,000 pounds to the cause.

The pair were both born at King George Hospital on the same day, but only met for the first time when they were selected to represent Essex County Cricket under-9s squad, ever since they’ve played on all the same teams.

Money is still being raised by the youngsters with the 
estimated total reaching £3,000 so far.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
