New Nets Fundraising for Storrington Cricket Club

On Friday 17th May Storrington Cricket Club were presented with a cheque from Waitrose for £542. The club had been part of the green token scheme recently at Waitrose in Storrington. The money will go towards buying new outdoor crickets nets which the club badly needs. Head Cygnets coach Martin Fisher said “We urgently need new nets to provide a safe environment for the younger members to practise and for other users of the recreation ground to be safe from flying cricket balls”. The Club has had close links with Storrington Primary School and the intention is that the school will  also have free use of the new nets when they are installed hopefully this summer.

The cost will be just under £40,000 and the club have raised over £27,000 so far. Future fundraising initiatives include a sponsored walk from the clubhouse on Sunday 23 June starting at 11am.  This traffic free stroll will take us to the top of the downs and back, with a shortcut for younger ones (or oldies), followed by a bbq at the club. For more details contact Head of Cygnets and u14 Manager: Martin Fisher – 07850 416886, martin_fisher@hotmail.com or visit: https://storringtoncricket.club/
