New stretch target

Our club has many targets and missions to develop for the well being of its members and community. 

Any funding will help towards the continued running costs of the club which is a struggle when there is no income being generated. Also any additional funding will be reinvested back in to the club developments to support the growth of our youth section and maintain the good progress of both our football and cricket sections together with ensuring the community benefit from our progress.  

Being a volunteer and family run organisation, the club is wholly reliant on income which is hugely supported all year round by its main events & sports, locals, members and players, without this there is no club.

 We have a group of dedicated people thinking about ways of generating income endlessly to ensure our long-term future and everyone’s hard work and dreams will not be lost due to this crisis.


Our club

Our club is one of the biggest, self-sustaining youth/adult/community setups in Cornwall with 3 cricket teams, 9 youth soccer teams, 4 men’s football teams, pool teams, darts teams, village evening teams (euchre, bingo, pilates), wedding reception facilities, mother/toddler groups, charity hosting events, live bands/comedy acts and regular community meal nights.

What we do is important?

The rural parish of Wendron is the largest in Cornwall and although there are few outlets for locals to participate in sport, or even to congregate at a central venue,  the club had to diversify and embrace not only the sporting community but also the socio-economic side. For over 40 years the club has achieved unparalleled success despite difficult socio-economic obstacles – acquiring land and attracting volunteers to drive forward change and develop what is now a highly respected thriving sporting and community atmosphere within the local area. 

How you can help us?

All this is delivered at great cost to the club. To fund these high level and regular activities a huge social calendar is managed by its management who work hard to maintain, develop and move the club forward by operating on a sound financial platform. For this to happen money has to come into the club. At present the club’s primary source of income is bar/kitchen sales and large annual community events, thus no sport/community events = no income = a struggling club!

Therefore any donations you can give will help us get our amazing community club through this crisis.

Please note some quotes from some of our locals, sports players, and managers about Wendron:

"fantastic community club, always welcoming"

"respect and community are the two most important concepts at the heart of our club. Any skill set, sport or passion the club always welcomes members with open arms with the intention to build and leave a legacy", 

"not just a sports club but a community centre that feels like a family"

"Wendron has a great atmosphere and sense of great community"

"Wendron and the community have been like an extra family, being at the club from the age of five I have seen it evolve and have 1st hand seen the support it gives back to the people of its community"

"Wendron has a team that plays competitive cricket on the field as well as having a great social too. I live close to the club and it offers much more to the community beyond sport"
