Staff at Hinchliffe’s Farm Shop have really got to the meat of the issue to celebrate a 20Twenty cricket family fun day this week ““ swapping cricket stumps for sausages and pitching pork pies instead of cricket balls!

Simon Hirst from the Netherton farm shop threw a fast ‘yorker’ (or should that be porker?) this week to mark the August 18 cricket match, using the shop’s award winning sausages and pork pies.

Hinchliffe’s will be getting out its whites and wickets ““ and its giant barbecue ““ as it joins forces with a ‘Select 11′ team from the Huddersfield Giants for the charity cricket match at Lascelles Hall Cricket Ground in Huddersfield.

While the rugby league legends and a combined military team of soldiers from the Yorkshire Regiment and the Yorkshire Gunners go head to head to provide the scorching cricketing action, Hinchliffe’s will deliver its own take on the (hot) Ashes with a sizzling line up of burgers and hot dogs followed by coffees and cakes.

All the money raised from the event will go towards the Giants’ ‘Side by Side’ campaign, which provides funds for soldiers and their families in need after suffering injuries, poor health or financial hardship, through the Yorkshire Regiment Benevolent Trust, the Yorkshire Gunners and Royal Artillery Charitable Fund, as well as seeking out and developing young talent through the Giants Talent Builder Program.

“Both regiments have a long and proud history in this country and it’s an honour to yet again help them and the Giants raise funds,” said Simon Hirst, from Hinchliffe’s. “It’s set to be an all-out day of fun, food and cricketing action for all the family!”
