Grittleton CC gets huge support from the Village, Vice Presidents and the Village Hall Committee. Normally we don’t ask local companies and individuals to sponsor us, but 150 not out in 2018 is rather different.
What are we raising money for?
To commemorate the event, we are aiming to raise between 10 and 20 thousand pounds to:
- add a clock to the pavilion, in a suitable dormer on the front (see picture above) – this will benefit all those who use the green, not just the cricketers.
- place some signage on the entrance to the site to improve the profile of the club – something that has been missing for 150 years!
- If we raise enough, we would like to refurbish the inside of the main pavilion room, including updating / replacing out rather tired kitchen and replacing parts of the floor that are suspiciously flexible.
- We have some other ideas for lasting items that will help keep cricket being played for another 150 years – perhaps you have something particular in mind?
What recognition / exposure will I/My company get?
Benefactors (individuals) will be listed on this website, in events programmes and on a plaque to be placed in the clubhouse to commemorate the 150th anniversary.
Corporate sponsors (gifts or donations under £500) will have their logo and name shown on this website, be listed in the programmes for all events and have their name listed on the clubhouse plaque.
Major Corporate Sponsors (gifts or donations over £500) will additionally have their name on a banner poster at the ground at the Village Cricket Festival and MCC game, as well as home games from July to September 2018. The company logo will be placed on the pavilion plaque.
How do I find out more?
Any sort of gift is welcome, we are looking for raffle and possibly auction prizes, money towards our goals as listed above or the outright purchase of an item.
