Bourne Cricket Club receive grant from South Kesteven District Council’s CrowdfundSK project
Bourne Cricket Club have received a grant from South Kesteven District Council’s CrowdfundSK project to help them survive a season decimated by Covid-19.
They have received a pledge of £100 from SKDC’s assessment panel, matching the amount already promised by the England and Wales Cricket Board.
Coun Kelham Cooke, leader of South Kesteven District Council, said: “It’s really important for us to be supporting projects that need extra help during the Coronavirus pandemic.
“Sport will be important for people of all ages as the district eases out of lockdown, whether they are participating or watching.
“I am pleased that the council has been able help Bourne Cricket Club, supporting sport at a grassroots level.”
Bourne's fundraising will support club funds, help to ensure the future of planned development projects and maintain its role as a welcoming club for players young and old, male and female.
CrowdfundSK works in partnership with crowdfunding platform Spacehive to offer a way to raise money quickly by connecting people with local causes.
Anyone can back a campaign safely online with as little as £2. Pledges are only redeemed when an appeal reaches its target. To support projects go to www.spacehive.com/movement/crowdfundsk/projects
