A charity cricket match is to be held in aid of Walking for the Wounded at Houghton Hall.

The event, on Saturday, May 28, is between a Walking with the Wounded XI and a Houghton International side, featuring riders taking part in the horse trials staged at the hall over the weekend.

Among the famous riders due to appear are Australians Sam Griffiths and Paul Tapner, Brazilian Ruy Fonseca and Will Furlong, from Britain.

The WWTW team features Ibrar Ali, a single arm amputee who went on the expedition to the South Pole last year and Matt Fisher, a one-leg amputee, who was on the Walk of Britain that came to Norfolk earlier this year.

The match starts at 5pm. Those attending the horse trials can watch for free but a VIP ticket costs £15. Contact wwtw.org.uk or call 01263 863900.
