The February Fools Charity Cricket MatchA cricket match between celebrities in February does admittedly sound rather foolish - but it's all in the name of charity and good fun. Played at the resplendent Bank of England Sports Ground in Roehampton, this annual clash usually sees TV darling Chris Tarrant and Sky Sports presenter Max Rushden captain the Luvvies XI and Broadcasting XI with guaranteed play - whatever the weather. It's free admission for spectators with auctions, a raffle, book stall and children's lucky dip raising money for the Twickenham-based David Adams Leukaemia Appeal Fund in aid of The Royal Marsden Hospital. A licensed bar serves hot and cold food and drinks - probably hot, given the time of year. Howzat for a winter Sunday's entertainment?
