Providing support and funding to cricket clubs across the country as they return to cricket.
Illingworth Cricket Club operates both junior and senior teams in The Halifax Cricket Leagues. It aims to encourage children from 8 years upwards to play cricket and progress to senior level. The club also offers a community facility through access to its club house and grounds. It is likely that for the first time in its long history, no cricket will be played due to the Coronavirus Epidemic and the club will be unable to generate any revenue during 2020. The club has substantial overheads which will continue despite a lack of revenue and we now appeal to our players, members and friends in the community to help the club during this difficult period.

Why it's a great idea:
We provide a much needed sports facility in North Halifax along with a club house which is available for local and community functions and events. The club provides coaching to juniors to encourage an understanding and love of cricket.
