Friends United Cricket Club are a friendly and inclusive based club formed in 2010 in Wembley. We have approximately 60 members ranging from 10 years old to adults.
We are a well-known and valued part of the local community and we believe that cricket can help children to develop their personal, social and physical skills. We aim to give all children the opportunity to play, learn and develop through cricket.
How You Can Help
Coronavirus - has had a big impact on our cricket club last year and in part this year as well. Due to cancellation last year, we lost all the fees we get from members as well as lost major sponsors due to difficult times for businesses who used to support us.
Our aim is to: -
- Raise funds to purchase portable sight screen for our Saturday and Sunday league matches
- Purchase essential training equipment for our newly created junior section - Bats, stumps, balls, cones, catching ramps, running ladders etc.
- Purchase live streaming equipment which will help us to broadcast matches on Saturday and Sunday online so relatives, parents, and friends as well as other members of community can watch from comfort of their homes
- Purchase a new mobile cover for the main pitch with advertisement option.
Attract young people from deprived communities by providing expensive equipment like pads, gloves, and bats.
- Improve health and wellbeing.
We are applying for Sport England Grant. If successful Sport England will add the monies raised to make our total even bigger! This will mean that any donations are worth more to us when donated through this Crowdfunder - so please do help us if you can!
