Three years ago Dave Newman, 37, and Richard Wells, 25, took it upon themselves to support a fellow Billingborough cricket team member diagnosed with two brain tumours (from which he fully recovered).

 

They broke the world record for the longest net session, smashing the 25 hour target of continuous batting and setting a new record of 48 hours, while raising over £16,000 for Brain Tumour Research. Since then their feat has been suprassed and the pair decided to break the current figure of 52 hours by hanging on for a colossal 72 hours. This time they have recruited team mate Shaun Brown, 31, who jumped at the chance.

 

The three will be batting against bowling machines, but anyone wishing to go down and bowl a few ends too will be welcome. They also need time keepers, ball collectors, machine operators and plenty of moral support.

 

They also plan to hold a quiz night to raise more money. Call Dave on 07984 908234.
