Heart Beats Racing: HWCC Race Night

On Saturday 26th February, High Wycombe Cricket Club hosted their first event of the year.

It was a great success with over £1000 raised for the Colts Development Fund. With 33 attendees in total, 11 senior players were present in contributing towards the night. A few junior parents enjoyed their time helping to contribute to the next generation of young players.
