The sun shone on the first day of this year’s BGL Sport Bash, which featured celebrities taking on forces heroes at the crease.

A Matt Hampson Foundation team comprising stars of sport and screen faced a Help for Heroes XI at the Stamford School playing fields yesterday (Thursday).

There was plenty to keep the crowds entertained, from a Spitfire flypast and parachute jumpers to climbing walls and inflatables for youngsters.

The fun continues today (Friday) with an England Masters XI taking on a Local Legends team. The match is due to start at 4.30pm, weather dependent, but there’s plenty to do should play be delayed.

The event is being held to raise money for the Matt Hampson Foundation, the Seb Goold Trust and Help for Heroes.
