Calne Cricket Club awarded funds by GreenSquare

GreenSquare has donated funds to Calne Cricket Club to assist the club with its annual ground rent at Beversbrook Sports Facility.

As part of its Community Investment Fund, GreenSquare’s residents are involved in the decision to award grants to projects that help their local communities, and recently chose to donate £750 to the cricket club.

Jill Stringfellow, Senior Community Involvement Advisor at GreenSquare, said: “We are pleased to award this donation to Calne Cricket Club. Through our Community Investment Fund, we aim to fund projects which will have a positive effect on the communities where our residents live. Calne CC is a fantastic local club, which enables young people in the area to get involved and enjoy sport, and is very deserving of our support.”

After suffering a considerable loss of revenue last year, after the poor weather conditions resulted in many match cancellations, Club Chairman, Martin Butler, is delighted with the donation from GreenSquare.

Martin explained: “This donation will enable Calne Cricket Club to keep its annual subscriptions down to an absolute minimum, so the local community can benefit. Now, the club will no longer have to increase its subscription charges. Our aim is to continue to make cricket affordable for everyone in our community.”
