Workington Cricket Club By Workington Cricket Club

Our idea is to run from Workington cricket club to Lords cricket ground which is a 700 mile round trip. We will complete this using the STRAVA application on mobiles and smart watches.

This project was funded on 30 Jun 2020!

Our project is a run/walk from Workington cricket club in Cumbria to the Lords cricket ground in London. We aim to do this by covering the miles using STRAVA. This will be achieved by various members/players/fans of the club logging and tracking their miles via the strava app. This not only promotes exercise and good health but will also be benificla for mental health during this tough time period caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic. We will use the funds generated from the project to help provide PPE for staff and members alike, help with the running of the club and providing new equipment for junior and senior times in order to ensure we provide a first class service to our community.

What we'll deliver:

  • fund new cricket equipment for senior and junior teams
  • Provide PPE for staff and safe working conditions in response to COVID-19
  • Help with ground maintenance costs

Not only b providing an excellent function room for the general public but by offering a great cricket facility for senior teams and junior teams. The club is also a great faciltiy for the local Park Run, Allerdale girls football team and the learn to run club. Therefore providing huge benefits to the local community.
