Sega Cricket tournament raises 2,700 for Action for Kids

Doron's Desperados claim the Challenge Cup

Members of the UK games industry raised 2,700 for children charity Action for Kids last week.

The Sega Cricket Challenge Cup has been running since 2011, and takes place at the Kew Cricket Club.

Action for Kids provides mobility equipment for disabled children around the UK, and supports young adults with learning disabilities. They also support young adults getting into paid work, and prepare students with learning disabilities for life after school.

The cricket tournament was won by Doron's Desperados (for the first time), who fought off fierce competition from Ian Livingstone's Pirates. Sega took third place, while Hatch's All Star Extras claimed the wooden spoon.
