Martyn Hill raises funds for Farndon Cricket Club and Shaw Mind in incredible sunrise to sunset bat-a-thon effort
After spending more than 12 hours at the crease, Martyn Hill has raised more than £2,400 for Farndon Cricket Club and mental health and wellbeing charity, Shaw Mind.
The 30-year-old, who took on the sunrise to sunset bat-a-thon from 4.43am until 9.21pm on Saturday, faced 2,557 balls — the equivalent of four one-day games or ten T20 matches.
Hill, who is a Chance to Shine schools officer and junior Outlaws coach at Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club, said the idea for the fundraiser followed the reopening of nets.
