AN AUCTION for a cricket bat raised more than £300 for Sophie Rolf’s KissyPuppy appeal.
The bat, signed by the squad of the star-studded Lashings team — the cricketing equivalent of the Harlem Globetrotters — was auctioned at Newport Cricket Club’s NPL fun day on Saturday.
It was donated by Vernon Burt, who was given the bat at a Lashings event on the mainland by the team, led by West Indian bowling legend Courtney Walsh.
Among the cricket legends to sign the bat were New Zealander Scott Styris, Australian Jason Gillespie and Pakistan’s Inzamam Ul-Haq.
