Newquay Cricket Club has scored after receiving a cheque for £350. 

Towan Blystra Lions Club donated £250 from its quarterly grants money which local not-for-profit groups can appeal to every three months, and the Lions Brains of Newquay Quiz at which quizzers from the cricketers won £100.  

Newquay and Cornwall councillor and Lion Kevin Towill was on hand to add another donation from his own community fund. 

The donations have helped the cricket club with some major expenditure this year, including a new tractor for maintaining the field. 

Towan Blystra Lions Club vice-president Jon Collins presented the cheque to Graeme Booth of Newquay Cricket Club. 

Jon said: “We are delighted to support groups like the cricket club as they provide such a positive and stimulating environment across such a wide age range from school children through to those of retirement age.”
