We are seeking emergency funding to offset loss of income due to Government lockdown measures. Without this funding, we will be unable to resume activities when the lockdown is lifted.

Pledges will be charged once the funding campaign ends

Due to Government lockdown measures, or club has been closed since March 2020. As such, we have lost all our income streams via membership fees, fundraising events etc. We are in severe financial difficulty without our regular income streams. Our ground needs regular maintenance, without which we will not be able to resume any cricket if the lockdown is lifted before the end of the season.

What we'll deliver:

  • Pay towards groundsman's fees so that he can maintain our pitch and ensure that it is 'match ready'

Why it's a great idea:

This project will help pay towards our grounds maintenance and ensure that we can provide members from the local community the facility to play cricket when the lockdown is lifted.

Steps to get it done:

  • Ensure cricket pitch is match ready when lockdown is lifted
  • Purchase essential groundwork equipment with any overfunding
