Over the years our cricket club has supported a number of local and national charities.
We raised over £100,000 for The Lord's Taverners, the UK's leading youth cricket and disability sports charity, between 1991 and 2001.
In 2014 our charity bike ride, 100 Not Out (of mind), raised almost £10,000 for the Royal British Legion and Help for Heroes.
In February 2017 we toured Sri Lanka, plying 5 matches and raising £10,300:00 for The Foundation of Goodness
The Foundation of Goodness is a charity which changes the lives of rural communities which continue to suffer from the long-term consequences of the devastating 2004 Tsunami. Many thousands of children were orphaned as a result of this disaster, and a huge amount of work and funding has been devoted towards providing them and all members of village communities with housing, education and sporting opportunities.
The work of the Foundation is described in the attached video:
Some talented young Sri Lankan cricketers played in our President's Match at Penn Street on Saturday 17th September.
This match marked the beginning of our fundraising for the Foundation.
We were invited as a club to visit the Foundation on 20th February 2017, at the end of our cricket tour, and at that time presented the Foundation with a cheque from our club.
All tourists paid for their own trip, meaning 100% of monies raised will go to The Foundation.
Thank you for your support.
