Luke Batty Foundation

What a terrific night Thursday night was, as the Tyabb All Stars took on the Victoria Police Cricket Club in the annual Luke Batty Foundation T20 Match.

As always, the match was a highly competitive one, with The Tyabb All Stars, just getting over the line.

But really, this match is to help promote and raise awareness against family violence. We will continue the battle against it with the Luke Batty Foundation and the Victoria Police. Thank you to everyone that attended and made the night such a success!

Of course these events don't just happen, so a couple of big thank you's:

* Neale Burgess MP for attending and supporting the event.

* Greg Hunt MP for not only playing, but getting the Tyabb All Stars off to a flyer, capturing 2/10 off his over!

* Police Commissioner Graham Ashton for playing in the event, smashing a boundary to get off the mark.

* Local MPCA players Chris Brittain and Chris Dew for playing on the night and both putting on a big show for the crowd.

* The members of the Victoria Police Cricket Club for making the trip, some of whom travelled quite a way.

* Members of the Tyabb Cricket Club that helped run the bar and BBQ. (Great to see some of our young members in Lachlan Caron and Lachlan Hose keen to help out, serving and cleaning up the BBQ).

And finally to the local community who got behind this event and made it such a success.
