Providing support and funding to cricket clubs across the country as they return to cricket.
Long Ashton Cricket Club is a popular community club with a friendly atmosphere and a thriving junior section. This season is our 150th summer and we had many plans to make this a memorable year. The club relies heavily upon playing cricket to generate its own income through membership subscriptions, match fees, ground hires and bar revenue but obviously with no fixtures and events we find ourselves in a in a very different position than normal. We are still working hard to ensure the club is ready to play cricket as soon as the current Covid-19 restrictions allow. Please help us to ensure we can survive the current crisis and provide a safe and welcoming environment when cricket returns to Yanley Lane.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Long Ashton Cricket Club has a long and proud history and we want that to continue. We have 2 league sides and Friday night social side. We also have a popular junior section with nearly 100 youngsters (aged 5-15) from the local community who enjoy regular cricket coaching and matches. The local community and schools also use the club for private parties and events.
