Last year my grandad was given the Lifetime Achievement Sports Award for Pendle area and then for the whole of Lancashire. He has played and worked for Pendle Forest Sports Club for 59 years. During that time he has captained 3 cricket teamsand 2 football teams, playing football until he was 45 and cricket until he was 61 .At different times he has been club secretary, treasurer,and now president. He was cricket secretary for 25 years and organised a district junior cricket league for 26 years. Since 1971 he has organised a '200 club'- a weekly draw which has raised over £50,000 for club funds. In the past 8 years he has helped start up junior cricket teams for P. F.S.C. He taught me to play cricket and his enthusiasm has rubbed off on me and many other boys. He now umpires, is volunteer cricket grounds man and scores if needed. P.S .Although he had a new knee last year I'm sure, with a bit of training, he would be able to jog the distance with the torch!!.
