Our cricket club relies on bar taking and subs to survive. We need your help during the COVID-19 crisis to ensure we can continue to serve our community once everything reopens!

This project was funded on 01 May 2020!

With the news last week that ECB have announced that that their will be no professional cricket until 1st July- let alone amateur cricket. This leaves DTCC with bills to pay and no income that can start coming in until at least that point. The ECB will donate £100 to the cause once the fundraising hits £100. DTCC have got bills of £600 a month and we have decided to set up a fund-raising site to help towards paying 2 months’ worth of bills. We want to ensure there is a place for the whole community to come together to play and enjoy cricket. It will be more important than ever once this is all over! We appreciate that not everyone associated with the club will be able to contribute but any help will be much appreciated in keeping the club afloat during this difficult time for everyone.

What we'll deliver:

  • Help to pay for critical overheads during COVID crisis
  • Cover ground maintenance and key running costs

Why it's a great idea:

As the cricket season has yet to get underway and all our fundraisers are currently cancelled, we have no income, but we still have to pay the bills! We love our cricket club and want to ensure it survives this crisis. With your help, we will be open again as soon as possible once it is safe to do so.

Steps to get it done:

  • Run crowdfunding campaign to collect funds
  • Cover one month bills (£600)
  • Start planning for the end of the lock down
