Raising funds for Alberbury Cricket Club to compensate for the loss of income caused by the Corona Virus.

This project was funded on 09 May 2020!

Alberbury Cricket Club has ongoing running costs, even in the absence of weekend, evening and junior cricket due to the Corona virus. Insurance, rent and utility bills still have to be paid and the pavilion, square, outfield and surrounds have to be maintained. Match and coaching subs normally cover this, but without them the additional funds that have been raised to develop the pavilion for girls cricket and replace ground equipment are being consumed. Contributing to this crowdfunding effort will help the club to be ready and in a strong position when we are finally able to get back on the field.

What we'll deliver:

  • A cricket ground and pavilion ready for play
  • New wicket mower

Why it's a great idea:

Alberbury CC provides recreational weekend and evening cricket for the local community, as well as junior coaching to boys and girls, through it's own programme and ECB's All Stars. This summer should also have seen a new national programme, called Dynamos, for 9-11 year olds in the local area. It is a valuable community asset that needs to be supported through this difficult time, to ensure it is able to continue to offer great value sport for all abilities and age groups.

Steps to get it done:

  • Maintain the Pavilion and Playing area during the Covid 19 crisis
