Llandudno Cricket Club held a fundraising day for the Red For Ruth charity on September 5 at The Oval.

The club arranged a match between their under-13 side and its ladies team.

In a closely fought game the ladies won by one run.

The event raised £253.

All the players wore red in their kit on the day in aid of the charity.

Red for Ruth is held annually to raise funds for the Ruth Strauss Foundation.

In early 2018, Ruth Strauss, wife of Sir Andrew Strauss the former England cricket captain, was diagnosed with an incurable lung cancer that affects non-smokers.

Ruth died on December 29th 2018; she was 46 years old and mother to two children, then aged 10 and 13.

In her memory, Sir Andrew Strauss has launched the Ruth Strauss Foundation to:
Provide emotional support for families to prepare for the death of a parent
Raise awareness of the need for more research & collaboration in the fight against non-smoking lung cancers

Red for Ruth events are held all over the UK. They are cricket-linked and involve wearing lots of red.
