Geoff Thomas

21 Sep 2022

Optimists Cricket Club was very saddened to hear about the passing of its Life Member, Geoff Thomas.


Geoff was a great friend of the Club for many years, active in both Optimists and Communities Cricket

(as captain and later Chairman of CCC – pictured as part of LCF Championship winning side in 2004)

and will be sorely missed. Geoff passed on the 14th of August 2022 and his funeral service took place in

Cambridge (UK) on the 30th of August.


Optimists CC would like to extend its deepest sympathy to Geoff’s family and friends.


For those members interested, a Just Giving page has been set up in his honour 

 (https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/geoffrey-thomas), along with some photos of Geoff in the picture

gallery. The charity the family have chosen to support is ActionAid. Over the years, Geoff supported and

sponsored children via the charity, in the hope of helping them on the path to a brighter future.
