Hawkinge Cricket and Social Club - Securing the Future

Our Club

Hawkinge Cricket Club is a vibrant and family-friendly cricket club, offering a wide range of playing opportunities to the local community for all ages. Also a very popular social side offering functions for all the local community.

Trying Times

What a challenging year 2020 was! Adults and colts were unable to play cricket at all last year, the first time since  the club had formed. Our social activities were also affected, with so many popular regular events and functions 

Our Appeal

Financially, 2020 was pretty awful.  Most revenue streams that the Club rely on have been negatively impacted by the pandemic, resulting in a significant financial loss. Despite the small business grant received from the local council, fixed overheads including utilities, staffing, running costs and ground maintenance continue.

We are therefore launching an appeal to our members and the local community for your support.  Our target is £5,000 and in achieving this, we will ensure we enter 2021 in a better financial position.  We will be able to complete a number proposed projects and can invest in and promote our youth and adult cricket teams; the worse affected part of the club in 2020.

How will we invest in our club

Donations received will be put to very good use. As a financially secure club we will be able to continue to develop our cricket offering to the community. This will include;

  • Growing our Colts section, including the provision of coaches to supplement our own volunteers
  • Investing in new equipment  gear for our junior players
  • Improved playing facilities e.g. new scoreboard, repair portable net, new covers 

Thank You

We appreciate times are difficult, however, it is unlikely that the Club will succeed without your help. Any amount that you can spare will be greatly appreciated.  Please donate whatever you can to ensure the future for our wonderful club.
