Girlington cricket club are a inner city club with 70 plus registered members, who play in BMSSCL in Bradford West Yorkshire.
This is over 140 years old cricket club, been at the same venue over 40 years. We run 2 senior teams and we used to run under 15 cricket team, we are based in most of the deprived community in the West Yorkshire. We had fantastic Clubhouse which stood over 100 years but unfortunately in 2012 it was burnt down by some mobs on a arson attack. We lost everything. Since then we had been using a cargo containers as a Clubhouse which had no toilet facilities, no kitchen, no electricity, just standard cargo containers. Now with help from our local council particularly from David Cansfield and volunteers we have been given go ahead to complete this project. But we do need your support. We had new electricity meter installed. Toilet for ladies and gents and new drainage put in. Clean water supply to new Clubhouse. We have 2 cargo containers and are turning them into one. We are going to make 2 changing rooms, and a dining room with open plan kitchen. We had raised some funding which had been spent now we need your support to complete this project. It is been difficult times for last 10 years without all these facilities. With your support we can provide these facilities again to the young youth and a wider community to enjoy once more. Due to lack of facilities we had to stop having under 15 cricket team. After this completion we can again start to provide sports facilities to our young youth and get them positive mood and help them to achieve positive in their health and well-being.
Please please help us.
