Robert Wilden

"As a past President of BHCC for 17 years I am aware of the efforts put in by those before me, those during my time and those carrying on the superb work in both the club and in the community. My Presidency has enriched my life, made me many new friends and given me lasting good memories. I am making this donation to help this remarkable club continue its work in the world of sport and the local community".

Raj Kapur (Son of Ramesh Kapur) -  DONATION £2000

Quote from Raj " On behalf of Ramesh Kapur, BHCC is a social activity based and community focused place. Ramesh Kapur was extremely fond of the place."

Ramesh served on the Club Management team for many years with great distinction and generosity of spirit

1601806270_helmet.jpgDamian Shepherd - Junior Parent and Sponsor of Junior Cricket at BHCC for a number of years

"Boyne Hill C.C. is a fantastic Club with a great family culture at its core. We are lucky to be part of it!"

1601806349_team_3.jpgMatthew Roberts - Junior Parent and generous Donor

" When I saw the effort Steve made with my son and the Juniors and when I played a few games in 4ths it made me think this is a special Club. We should all realise we need to make sure this Club does not go away. We need to keep it viable".

1601806386_team_1.jpgSPORT ENGLAND

We hope to gain some additional funding from Sport England which generously supports similar fund raising campaigns.

1601806702_pres_2.jpgSUMMARY

Any extra funds raised over target will go to purchase 1 x PVC Sightscreen cost £1300 and a much needed service and replacement of parts for the ground outfield mower; quotes in excess of £1450.

In the longer term we would like to install an Electronic Scoreboard, approximate cost £6000 and much depends on the recovery of finances in 2021.
