The Horley Cricket Club are are pleased to invite you to a fund raising Cheese and Wine Evening along with a Memorabilia Auction at the Old School on Friday November 24th at 7.30. For a preview of of the lots available at the auction see the catalogue.
A huge thank you to everyone that came and those that helped make wonderful tribute for Gary possible. It was everything we’d hoped for and more, we feel very blessed having such a fabulous family and friends, and being a part of such an amazing community. We were so moved by the palpable feeling of love, laughter and the uplifting music.
We raised £350 in cash for Thames Valley Air Ambulance that has been added to the online total of £3,398.15. Thank you to everyone that donated so far as we have exceeded our target of £2500 for just one flight.
I know many of you still wish to donate so lets pay for another flight for someone else.
You can donate online https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/GaryDFox or as I’ve done for others let me have your donation and message so I can post it for you. Whatever works for best for you, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org .
Below is our visit on Tuesday 2nd May to meet the crew and see the Air Ambulance that landed on our Cricket Field. Thank you all again for love and support, Deb, Grant & Lauren xxx

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!
