Knypersley Cricket Club By Knypersley Cricket Club

Knypersley Cricket Club is Biddulph's sporting jewel in the crown and has been hit dramatically by the COVID 19 pandemic. Fundraising was almost halted in 2020 and we desperately need help for 2021.

This project was funded on 23 Jan 2021!

The pandemic of 2020 has stopped not only the biggest part of our cricket games but almost as importantly prevented all the vital fundraising events taking place, meaning that funding to keep the club in existence has failed. We now find ourselves unable to fund vital maintenance, repairs to machines and upkeep of the buildings, pavilion and ground itself, not to mention the plan to purchase vital new machines to maintain the ground has had to be put on hold. We have found a way to make up some of the necessary funding through crowdfunding.

What we'll deliver:

  • A new pitch mower at a cost of over £5000
  • Maintenance to our outdoor nets approximately £3000
  • Building Maintenance including the Victorian pavilion around £2000

Why it's a great idea:
