The Dream Big Montrose night cricket challenge

This night cricket tournament has been held for the last five years, growing in size each year. The tournament is designed to provide an opportunity for young cricketers to play under lights. This year Jenna Clifford became involved, bringing on board her ‘Dream Big’ philosophy.

On the final evening of the Night Cricket Challenge, R5,000 was raised for the WSPCCA by selling 500 balloons to which each purchaser attached their own special dream. The balloons were released at the closing ceremony.
