CRICKETERS from Gloucestershire County Cricket Club have raised around £3,500 for the Professional Cricketers' Association Benevolent Fund and the Tom Maynard Trust.

Players Hamish Marshall and Richard Coughtrie cycled 450 miles from Durham to The Oval in London. The cycle ride - which started on October 18 - took five days to complete.

Both cricketers, who were part of an overall team of fundraisers, trained at BS7 Gym to prepare for the challenge.

The PCA Benevolent Fund supports current and former players and their dependants in times of hardship and upheaval, whilst the Tom Maynard Trust helps the development of aspiring, disadvantaged cricketers.
