As part of the giveaway, children received a special cricket bat, a soft cricket ball, a selection box and the free training session invite.
The free session will take place from 4pm-5:30pm, with the children and their parents then invited to stay and watch Padiham CC take on Lowerhouse CC in an exciting local derby.

Padiham CC player and lettings manager/sales adviser at Pendle Hill Properties, Toby Burrows, said: “We had a fantastic time handing out the cricket bats and balls at Christmas, but now we can’t wait to see the children coming down to Padiham CC and having a go at playing some cricket. No experience is needed, we just want them to come down and have some fun.”
Andrew Turner, managing director at Pendle Hill Properties, commented: “Here at Pendle Hill Properties we are passionate about sport in our local communities and our cricket bat giveaway initiative is one which we are really proud of.
