Gala Cricket Club is embarking on '4K in May'.

Despite the new cricket season being on hold until June 1 at least, ‘4K in May’ will see the club’s players and members aim to travel 4000 kilometres collectively, using any form of exercise such as walking, cycling and jogging.

One of the organisers, Ross Patterson, said: “The club felt it was right for us to give something back to the NHS for the work they are doing while, at same time, encourage our players and members to get some exercise.

“This can take place in the home or as part of the one form of outdoor exercise allowed each day.

“It would be fantastic if others in community wanted to take part, donate a small amount, or both.”
