More than 100 children will be able to have a go at cricket during an annual children’s fun week thanks to a generous £500 donation.
Wisbech Cricket Club has once again been bowled over by the generosity of members of the town’s Round Table group. The club will be holding events between Monday and Friday, August 11 and 15, at its Harecroft Road field thanks to the round table.
Coaching will be provided for youngsters aged between six and 16. The event also includes fun activities for the family during the evenings.
The cheque was presented by round table chairman Jason Bishop to Shane Sleath, the club’s cricket development manager.
Cricket club chairman Bob Burgess said: “Without this donation we would not be able to provide this event at an affordable cost for parents. It is a highlight of the year, particularly on the Friday when we have 100 people playing.
The session costs £35 per child for three days.
