Ravenshead Cricket Club is a local community cricket club that has been established for over 30 years. We play our cricket at The Burnt Stump Country Park in the South Notts Cricket League.
Our full members will typically subsidize the cost of our junior members and we normally provide coaching, equipment and playing opportunities all free of charge for our junior members. Not only that, we provide an environment that is safe for all.
Normally, every year we collect membership subscriptions which is used to get the game on and we carry out our own fundraising events, such as fun days and quiz nights to raise those extra funds to get the juniors involved, give them everything they need and get them playing cricket.
With this pandemic our normal income channels and opportunities have been cut, yet we have still had to payout standing charges and standing operational costs to keep the club in existence.
When cricket returns, and hopefully very soon, we want to be ready. We want to be in a position that all of our members can play the game safely and we do not have the financial worries that we have right now. For our juniors we want to keep them interested, we want to keep the future involved. Crowdfunder is an excellent opportunity for us and in these very different times and we would really appreciate any support that comes our way. Thank you!
Crowdfunder is making it 100% free for community and charity crowdfunding projects during the coronavirus crisis. The Covid-19 epidemic could affect millions of people in the next few weeks.
These are unprecedented times but together, we are stronger, and the response is coming from communities across the country.
Volunteer groups are springing up to tackle the logistical problems faced in our communities – but they need urgent support. That's where we come in.
