Dear Members & Friends of Lapworth Cricket Club – 11th May 2020

As I am sure you will have realised we should by now be some five weeks into our 2020 cricket season, however, due to the COVID-19 crisis this is unfortunately not the case.

With no cricket being played it will not surprise you that there is currently zero revenue being generated from member’s subscriptions, match fees and bar sales etc. With certainly no change coming till at least July 1st and the very real possibility that we will not get any recreational cricket this season there will be little to no income for the club this season. However, LCC will still have significant outgoings of over £5,500 for rent, building insurance, equipment and ground maintenance as well as a defibrillator to be purchased and installed putting the club under considerable financial pressure.

Now more than ever Lapworth Cricket Club needs your help and support.

In order for the club to survive these uncertain and worrying times, LCC with the support of the ECB (England & Wales Cricket Board) have launched a Crowdfunding scheme where the local community and businesses along with LCC members, friends and family can pledge much needed funds to the club. In addition the ECB have committed to top-up the total by £100 as long as the goal is reached. Our objective, ultimately, is to generate enough to fund the purchase of a defibrillator with any extra funds raised going towards the fixed costs LCC has to pay regardless of whether a ball is bowled or not!

So what can you do to help? By contributing yourself and sharing this email and link to your family, friends, work colleagues, local groups/businesses etc. you will be helping LCC maintain the beautiful Melson Memorial Ground and provide a much needed defibrillator.

Any contribution, no matter what the amount will be greatly appreciated and put to good use.  Please see the link to donate here: https://www.spacehive.com/lcc-covid-19-emergency-response-fund

Thank you in advance for your continued support. Stay safe and we looking forward to welcoming you at Lapworth Cricket Club sometime soon.

Kind regards
