A VILLAGE on the outskirts of Alresford is to hold a fundraiser in aid of a military charity.

Ropley Cricket Club, in Vicarage Lane, will host the Help for Heroes Cricket Day on Sunday, July 6, with junior league matches starting at 10am.

A Ladies vs Help for Heroes match will follow, with Ropley CC facing a charity team in the afternoon.

The village was recently hit by a devastating fire as their 800-year-old church went up in smoke earlier this month.
