A CRICKET match between a local cricket club and an ‘Emmerdale All Stars’ team raised more than £2,000 for charity.
The 20/20 match, played at Higham Cricket Club on Pog Well Lane, saw the hosts raise £2,346.20 which was split equally between Prostate Cancer UK and Yorkshire Ambulance.
They faced a side featuring ex-Red Jon Parkin, who now fronts the Undr the Cosh podcast, and a raft of Emmerdale cast members including Joe-Warren Plant, who plays Jacob Gallagher, and Liam Fox who stars as Dan Spencer.
