THE Atherton Cricket Club held a special day of cricket last Sunday as they hosted an in-house competition, raising money for breast cancer nurses. 

Members of the club and the wider community got together at Loder Park on Sunday as two matches were held, Young Bucks vs Old Bulls and the Presidents Cup.

The day was held in support of the Nasser family who are an integral part of the club and have been for many years.

Recently Phoebe Sceresini (Nee Nasser) was diagnosed with breast cancer and Atherton Cricket Club president Tony Potts wanted to do something to help the family.

Mr Potts said that the Nasser family is a big part of the Atherton Cricket family.

“The Nasser’s are a part of the cricket family and Phoebe is only 27,” he said.

“We decided to have a President’s Cup game, we haven’t had a President’s Cup game for 25 years.

“All proceeds will be going towards breast care nurses.”
