Former Hampshire cricketer and international umpire, Rotarian John Holder, organises an annual charity dinner to raise funds for the provision of coaching for young amateur cricketers in the Rochdale area.

Over the last 8 years, the event has raised in excess of £20,000 with speakers including former England captains Michael Vaughan, Mike Gatting and David Gower along with Michael Holding, Devon Malcolm, Jonathan Agnew, Neil Mallender and Jim Cumbes.

The coaching scheme is administered through the Lancashire Cricket Foundation, a charity arm of Lancashire County Cricket Club.

Unfortunately the 2020 cricket dinner has had to be cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

However it is hoped to hold the event in 2021 and details will be posted on this page when available.
