To raise £20,000 for the structural repair and roof replacement of our scorebox, and repair of surfaces and netting in our practice net area

by Leslie Vincent in Kidderminster, England, United Kingdom

S-O-S     Save our Scorebox!     Please.

Our project is to raise £20,000 for essential structural repairs to our crumbling scorebox, and for the vital refurbishment of our net facility, where the netting is in need of replacement and the artificial turf surfaces are showing considerable signs of wear.

The score1596627813_1596627819522.pngbox building needs immediate attention at a time when our finances are stretched to the limit after such a long period of lockdown with no income. Even now, although cricket is thankfully up and running at last, we cannot host any functions, which are our life blood. In the main, this would have been funded from events planned throughout the 2020 season which was completely disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

                                   Scorebox History

Our scorebo1596792701_side.jpgx was built in 1927 by James Greenway in memory of his father who scored for KCC for many years. It was a single storey building, and in 1980, recently deceased member Bill Brooks added a second floor, and a digital scoreboard frontage was installed in 2014. We were therefore devastated to discover that the scorebox was structurally unsound with the sides and rear crumbling fast.

             What we deliver to the community

Kidderminster Cricket Club is one of the largest cricket clubs in Worcestershire. We provide Saturday League cricket for 4 teams playing in the prestigious Birmingham and District Premier Cricket League and Worcestershire County League. We also operate a large junior section which provides coaching and matches for around 100 young boys and girls. We are a “Clubmark” club providing a safe environment for youngsters to learn and enjoy their cricket experience.

Alongside our adult and junior cricket, we have in the last few years become a county designated Women's/Girls Cricket Hub. With a developing girls section, we now compete at u11 and u13 and our girls would have competed at u9 this year had it not been for the pandemic. We deliver the ECB's annual All Stars programmes to boys and girls aged 5 to 8 and were set to run the ECB's new Dynamos programme for 8 to 11 year olds before lockdown forced its cancellation.

We also have a thriving ladies softball team, and last year hosted the county's largest women's softball festival with almost 100 participants plus spectators.

Our junior section has also provided coaching assistance for Wicketz Cricket, funded by the Lord Taverners, delivered by Worcestershire County Cricket, and this summer hosted by KCC, extending our ethos of inclusivity.

                 Use by other community groups

We aim to provide extensive, high quality facilities which are enjoyed by our members, the local community, and county representative groups. Our meeting and function rooms are used  by many organisations, including 16 local masonic lodges, umpires, cricket league management, football supporters associations and charity groups.

We also support the local community by making our facilities available for regular meetings/sessions of pulmonary rehabilitation maintenance classes and social meetings for groups with learning difficulties.

There were close to 100 cricket matches played on our pitches during 2019 in addition to weekly coaching sessions for Seniors and Juniors

Our high quality cricket pitches, outfield and facilities are always in demand from representative teams at County and International level. In 2019, we hosted 9 days of First Class County cricket for Worcestershire County Cricket Club at short notice when their main ground was flooded. The England Disability team again used our pitches for an International Tournament. 

The club is run by a small dedicated group, and without income throughout the summer, funds are needed for these essential projects.

As a non profit making club, we need to generate donations from members, friends and the wider community to achieve our target of £20,000.

Covid-19 has prevented many of our fund raising and membership activities throughout the summer with thousands of pounds in income lost.

We feel that our wider community has an appreciation of the work done at our club and this is one of those occasions where we can pull together.

To help with our administration, if you make a donation in one of the above ways, could you please put a note in the comments box to clarify who it is from and what category it is.

Also, if you're paying a joint membership donation, please pay for each member of your family separately using a different email address if you can.
