QSCC donate to Hooked on Cricket

At an intimate function the Queen Street Cricket Club presented a cheque to the NZCPA for the purpose of delivering the Hooked on Cricket programme.

QSCC Chairman Brian Moss presented the cheque to NZCPA Cheif Executive Heath Mills at a function that included members of both organisations. Trent Boult, Nathan McCullum, Kyle Mills, and Tim Southee took an active part of the evening with a fun and informative Q&A session following the presentation of the cheque.

A number of past playing members took the opportunity to recognise this moment with the current players, notably NZCPA Patron Barry Sinclair, Chairman Ross Verry, Board Member Grant McKenzie, Peter McGlashan, James Marshall, John Sparling, and Martyn Sigley.

QSCC are a registered charity and raise funds by member donations in a fun and enthusiastic manner. We hope that CPA members may also take the opportunity to join QSCC and be part of this unique club. You can find out more about QSCC at their website
