Charity cricket tournament held to raise mental health awareness

A cricket tournament was held at Windsor Cricket Club to raise awareness about mental health.

Sport in Mind, a mental health charity based in Berkshire, organised the event which took place at Home Park, in Romney Lock Road, on Tuesday, August 19.

More than 300 players took part in the event, which aims to get people experiencing mental health conditions involved in sport.

Sport in Mind founder Neil Harris said: "We are thrilled at the success of the tournament yet again this year and we'd like to thank everyone who took part as they were the ones that made the day so special.

"The event has helped us to raise awareness of mental health and has been a fantastic example of how sport can have a positive impact on the lives of people experiencing mental health conditions."

The event was won by a team from Slough who will go through to a national final in October.
