Remarkable Achievement for Cricket Pavilion Fundraising

HCCHCC Pavilion plans-front

Way beyond the wildest expectations here’s the July Fundraising Update:

Sunday 10th July 2016 was a pretty remarkable day at Horley Cricket Club, apart from one early light shower, the sun shone all day. The club came together across all playing age groups, social members, supporters and villagers to raise on total over £2,500 for the new pavilion fund – way beyond the wildest expectations of the Fundraising Committee.

The day further emphasised what a great club this is and how it richly deserves the new facilities that it will eventually get.

There are too many people for the Fundraising Committee to thank so huge apologies in advance for those names missing off this list but here goes in no particular order(!): Ross; Terry; Clive; James; Jamie; Claire; Richard; Mark; Sue Row; Sue Row’s sister; Rosie; all juniors who played in the morning and all parents who supported them; all those that offered Promises for the Auction and all those that bought Promises; all who offered items for sale that have been held over for an auction of physical items later in the season; all 1st & 2nd team players that both played and supported; and finally thanks to playing friends of Horley from Long Compton CC and Sibford CC and their families.

A very high benchmark has been set and we now have a stockpile of physical items to auction later in the season. We’ve had new ideas for Fundraising including a Cheese and Wine Winter Evening – which will happen. Please keep the ideas coming. We are continuing positive funding discussions with ECB, OCB, CDC and Sport England but these processes are typically quite slow – bear with us. Many have asked when we can start to see some of the ‘Batometer’ on the pavilion beginning to be coloured in – watch this space!
