Former league-winning Scholes cricket captain James Noble is looking to raise £50,000 in memory of his son Harry who tragically died last year at just six months old.
James has set up a number of events over three weekends – starting this weekend – to raise money for both Barnsley Hospital and Sheffield Children’s Hospital where Harry was treated. Harry died in August 2020 following a brave battle with irreversible brain damage.
James has already raised nearly £19,000 on his Just Giving page which you can find HERE.
He is hoping that the events he has set up will push the fundraising towards the £50,000 target.
The events are as follows:
Sunday August 22
From 3pm at the Butchers Arms in Hepworth the band ‘The Clive Berry Experience’ will be playing and helping to raise funds.
Masters Rugby Match at Underbank Rangers RLC (2pm ko).
Sunday August 29
Scholes 2000/1 v Scholes 2009/10 (1.30pm start). Two old Scholes league winning sides go head to head followed by live music from THE JIN. There will also be a BBQ, an auction and family fun day on the pastures of Chapelgate.
Monday August 30
Scholes v Hepworth annual cricket match. Hundred style auction plus much, much more.
Thursday September 9
Harry Noble Memorial Golf Day at Crosland Heath.
Even if you’re not playing golf on the day, there will be live music and more throughout the afternoon, including raffle/auction etc. followed by a gig by THE JIN at 9pm.
James has also been donated various items to auction off online. You can see what is on offer by clicking on the link HERE.
