Cricket Legends Lunch 2010 for Northcott Disability Services

4 November 2010  

Barry Knight ‘ bowls a bumper’ to elite cricket panel
Cricket legend Barry Knight told guests at the Cricket Legends Lunch that Australian test spinners hadn’t significantly spun a ball for two years.  A brave proclamation amongst a panel consisting of  Brett Lee, Geoff Lawson, Usman Khawaja and Alex Blackwell and  in a room full of other Australian cricketers and cricket tragics causing  several to almost choke on their beers.

Barry’s comments came during the lively ‘legendary’ panel discussion at the 15th annual Cricket Legends Lunch held to support kids, young people and adults with disabilities through Northcott Disability Services.

The panel discussion is the highlight of this lunch every year where, in addition, each individual table of guests also has a ‘Cricketing Legend’ seated amongst them.  This year’s lunch was in a new home at Doltone House which proved a winning venue and was auspiciously timed as the build up to the 2010/11 Ashes series reaches a climax.  Jim Maxwell, ABC commentator and ‘The Voice of Cricket’, M.C’d in his customary relaxed style enlisting the help of Geoff Lawson for the auctioning of sporting memorabilia, U2 tickets and framed art works.

Amongst the speakers were Scott Hutton and Simon Madigan, clients of Northcott Disability Services, who spoke of how Northcott’s Recreation and Leisure programs had given them the opportunity to spend time with their peers in social and sporting activities.  These two inspirational young ‘chaps’ relished the day enormously having a great time mingling with their idols.

The Cricket Legends Lunch was originally inspired by former Australian test cricketer, Frank Missan, and is a major fundraiser for Northcott Disability Services’ Recreation and Leisure programs. MiSociety is proud to promote this very worthwhile cause - so stay tuned for details of their next event.  For further information on Northcott Disability Services.
