Providing support and funding to cricket clubs across the country as they return to cricket.
We are a CASC and operate as a non-profit club, with money raised being invested into the pitch, pavilion and machinery. We have various running costs, such as insurance, electricity, water, fuel, repairs etc. that we will still have to meet despite no current income from subscriptions, match fees, hiring out the pitch and Clubhouse. All work is done by volunteers. We are therefore seeking donations towards the renewal and upkeep of the facilities, which are enjoyed by the wider community such as staging Kwik Cricket Festivals and other events, as well as for our own cricket club members - both Seniors and Juniors, so that cricket can resume as soon as the lockdown ends - hopefully a little later this summer!
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Barnstaple & Pilton 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.
