Pamela Farrar

Pamela Farrar and husband Kenneth wanted to give something back to The Christie as Kenneth was being treated here for bowel cancer. The family were overwhelmed with the support and treatment he had received and with this in mind, Kenneth contacted his local cricket club in Heywood (where he had played from the age of 15), to hold a cricket match.

This took place back in July but sadly two weeks before the event took place Kenneth passed away.  Pamela and her family decided to still hold the event as Kenneth would've wanted this to go ahead.

The day was a huge success and it was lovely to meet Pamela and her family as they came along to The Christie to present us with the fantastic amount of £5,000! Huge thanks to Pamela and everyone who supported the event on the day!
