We're still collecting donations

On the 22nd September 2023 we'd raised £13,547 with 106 supporters in 63 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

 New stretch target

If we manage to exceed our target then any additional funds will support the improvement of our playing facilities. The actual cost of a new roller is £20,000 so every single penny over and above our original target will be so helpful! 

We will also spend any additional funds on improving the indoor space for the increasing number of local families who use our facilities. 


Who are we?

We are a family-oriented community cricket club in the foothills of the Malvern Hills, Herefordshire with a proud history going back 150 years, run by a dedicated army of volunteers. The club has always represented more to local people than simply a venue for watching or playing cricket; it is a social hub. Many other community groups and local schools use our facilities on a regular basis and we are proud of the role we play in the community. 

We are a village club with new women's teams, and a thriving juniors' section of over 250 young people aged 4-18, including ECB Allstars. Additionally we run 3 Saturday sides, a development team and a social midweek side-  the legendary Colwall League of Gentleman (CLOGS). 1688729028_img_6665.jpeg

Our role in the community

Our club is also home to On the Up Coaching, weekly circuit training and women's fitness classes. Other local schools such as The Elms, The Downs and Colwall Primary School and Worcester University are all part of the Colwall Cricket Family. In addition to this, we enjoy welcoming over 250 young people to the club every Friday evening, in addition to their parents, grandparents, family and friends. We are also very proud to host an annual women's cricket festival week, with teams from across the country participating. 1688728184_img_5294.jpeg

As we came out of lockdown, we were then hit with the cost of living crisis, which continues to put a strain on resources but the volunteers remained resolute in their efforts to maintain the club and ensure cricket continues and the club remains accessible to all. We know that local community spaces such as our club have an increasing responsibility to support local residents and families.

Why are we crowdfunding?

With an ever growing junior and women's section, it is more important than ever that we are able to maintain high quality playing facilities and pitches. This is so that those new to the game are able to develop their confidence on a safe surface. Our current heavy roller is over 70 years old and is long overdue retirement! A new motorised roller is a long term investment but unfortunately is an expensive piece of equipment, costing approximately £20,000, which should last over 20 years...

Additionally, we feel very fortunate to have our clubhouse used by more families than ever before, but we now need funding to make this space more family friendly and accessible, so that families can continue to enjoy this truly community space free of charge.1688727960_60a346ce-003e-42f5-a840-f752ad647950.jpeg
