Since its inception in 1986, the Bunburys have raised well over 12 million pounds for charities. Both Eric Clapton and Bill Wyman have been long-time supporters of the Bunbury Cricket Club both on the pitch and off. EC has loaned his musical talents many times performing at post-cricket concerts in the eighties, recording a song with the Bee Gees for the Bunbury’s charity album, and headlining the annual gala in 2008 and 2009.
