Providing support and funding to cricket clubs across the country as they return to cricket.
Covid-19 is a threat to us and to our community. We provide cricket for all regardless of gender or ability and allow anyone to enjoy watching cricket in a lovely setting. Maintaining our facilities costs money. We are grateful for the support received from our members and sponsors but with Covid-19 we have lost a significant amount of subscription income and with no coaching or matches we have no match fees or bar takings. The club is run by volunteers, but there are costs whether we are playing cricket or not. We want to raise money to cover the costs of running the club; to provide equipment so we are in a strong position once we can restart. We were hoping to receive a boost following last years’ world cup win. All money raised through this scheme will help us to inspire our current, new and returning cricketers in the community. When we are able to return any monies remaining will go towards a community fun day at the club.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Kimbolton Cricket Club is at the heart of our community and provides cricket facilities for people throughout the community. We are particularly proud of what we can offer our young cricketers and we need to do all we can to help ensure that we are still able to provide opportunities in the future. Covid-19 is already having a disproportionate negative effect on young people and it would be a dreadful shame if they were not able to engage with cricket in the same ways and to the same high standards going forward.. With your help we can survive and thrive and help youngsters in the future. With your help, we will be open again as soon as possible once it is safe to do so
