A summer cricket programme in Thame helped raise money to aid further sport development in the UK.

The courses for children aged six to 12, saw almost 250 kids from England, Wales, Scotland, Switzerland and India attend.

Run by the MP Sports Academy, a special presentation ceremony was held which was attended by Thame mayor Nigel Champken-Woods and deputy mayor Don Butler.

The day saw a live steel band play, a barbecue, a presentation trophy, made in England cricket ball and goodie bag given out to all the participating children.

The MP Sports Academy programme run by Thame cricketer Manoj Parmar is to tour again next month at Lords cricket ground.

Mr Parmar paid tribute to coaches, Michael Higgs, Edward Barnett, Vandit Jivrajani and Harry Desai who all helped lead the six courses throughout the summer.
