British model/actress Elizabeth Hurley is putting her fiance Shane Warne's cricketing skills to good use by hosting a charity match to raise money for good causes. The Bedazzled star and her professional cricket player partner are hosting a special event at the Cirencester Cricket Club in Gloucestershire, England next weekend (09Jun13) in aid of charities in Britain and Warne's native Australia. The 20/20 match will pitch Warne's Australia team against another led by retired British cricketer Michael Vaughan, and will include many famous faces from the sport, while there will also be food and drink stands, a raffle and face-painting on offer. Money raised by the event on 9 June (13) will go to the Hop, Skip & Jump Foundation, a U.K. charity offering respite care to children and young adults, and the Shane Warne Foundation, which supports seriously ill and underprivileged children in Australia.
