I’m delighted to welcome you to the Stephen Harmison Benefit Year 2013. We are excited to be celebrating the contribution to English cricket by the Ashington Express.
Stephen’s achievements in cricket are well known and those of us that know him off the field too are delighted to be able to honour him during this very special year. Numerous contributions from colleagues and friends in the Benefit Brochure comment that Stephen would do anything for anybody, a real testament to someone’s character, and one of the main reasons why we have already had such enthusiasm from individuals and businesses willing to support us.
The Benefit Committee is planning a year of fantastic events which will be held at some of the finest venues in the North East. These include two major golf days, a cricket day featuring the PCA Masters and an Ashes Dinner.
We’ll also be hosting an event in the Long Room at Lord’s and as well as a gala dinner in London.
We want the year to be lots of fun but our objective is also to raise as much money as possible for the chosen charities, The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and the PCA Benevolent Fund.
We look forward to meeting you at one of the planned events throughout the year. Thank you for your support.
Chairman, Stephen Harmison Benefit Committee
