St Margaret's Cosmopolitan Cricket Club is a community cricket club just outside Dover, providing cricket and social opportunities to the local community and players from a wide area. We offer cricket for all, from the ages of 5 up to 75! We currently have adult teams in the Kent Regional League as well as youth teams in the Saxon Shore League.
The club is open to all and run by volunteers. Our aim is to encourage greater participation in cricket - both playing and socially - across every part of our local community.
What do we do?
Throughout the year we try to fit is as many cricket matches as we can. From Allstars to League cricket, we ensure cricket is played in a safe and fun environment.
How can you help us?
As a volunteer-run club, we need to generate donations from members, friends and the wider community to help move forward out of the global pandemic. We're aiming to raise at least £2,000. This will help offset some of the income we have lost across the 2020 season.
You can obviously donate whatever you choose and we would welcome support from any families or businesses in the community who value what we do.
Your donation can also be made against one of the following rewards
Membership donations – we would ask people to consider donating the cost of their membership for 2021
- Senior Players - £35
- Junior Players - £10
- Social members - £7.50
- Club sponsor donation - £150
Straight donations - you can just use the box on the top right of the donation page to give whatever you choose.
After being the green light to continue with outdoor cricket in the summer of 2020, the club played a pivotal role in improving people's well being and mental health, helping to bring back the sense of community after a tough period for all. The club adapted all of its premises, coaching and matches so it was COVID secure. This will continue as we go into the new season.
"Our whole family missed the friends we had made at the club."
"We were impressed at how quickly the club adapted it's coaching - our daughter loves it!'
The club is completely self sufficient and relies on tireless work of volunteers, which help run the club through a committee.
What will we use the money for?
The club still has outgoings, despite income streams being significantly reduced. Your donations would be used in the up keep of the ground and pavilion. As well as this, we are hoping to part fund an extension to our pavilion.
Over many years we have consistently invested in our playing facilities. We do not want COVID to leave us too far behind with our plans.
