Old Boys' Cricket Raises Funds for Bursaries
Friday, 21 October 2016
A cricket match held earlier this summer between the "Outcasts" and the "Dukes" at Bolton School raised £75 for the School's bursary fund. The two teams, captained by two Old Boys and largely comprising of former pupils, decided to donate their match fees to the fund that supports those families who otherwise would not be able to send their children to Bolton School.
The Dukes (NHS Chorley Hospitals), led by former pupil Peter Labbett, has strong links with the School and includes two Old Boys and current teachers in its team. They also play the staff team. The Outcasts' team comprises civil servants who lost their posts in the Greater Manchester reshuffle and were led by Old Boltonian, Steve Ramsden.
On the day, the Dukes ran out winners by 6 wickets.
