Sportscarhire was at the Shropshire Cricket Club’s annual Challenge match sponsored by ResourceBank. Taking place at Wrekin College on 10th July, a number of internationally experienced players played against Shropshire’s Unicorns Championship side to raise money for the Club’s chosen charity – the Shrewsbury Drapers Company. With warm sun and barely a cloud in sight, it was a beautiful day to be outdoors and perfect cricket-with-cream tea weather!
However, in the refreshing cool shade of the main marquee stood Sportscarhire’s Aston Martin Vantage V8. Serving as both the centrepiece for the marquee and a main prize for the event’s charity auction with a full weekend hire. Many took part in the auction for a variety of prizes, with the bidding almost as intense as the cricket match itself, which included the likes of Pakistan international all-rounder Abdul Razzaq, Indian opening batsman Wasim Jaffer and West Indies paceman Corey Collymore.
Eventually the auction had a victor for the Vantage with a high bid of £680, so the Aston will soon be enjoyed for a weekend with his partner. We hope the weather on that day will be equally kind.
So the event was a great success and a fun day that we were proud to have been a part of. Thanks to everyone who came along and supported the event, we hope to see many of you again at our Shrewsbury showroom!
