Do it now.........Check out the website in the details below.

Dear members, players, sponsors, families and friends and members of the community

Our crowdfunding site is now live, please do use the link below to visit the website;

PLEASE NOTE: The website automatically includes a tip for platform fees. Prior to payment – click on ‘Enter custom amount’ and ensure you enter £0 and continue.

As you know we are trying to raise funds to make major changes to our pavilion in Ampthill Park. We need to raise over £350k and to date have secured £270k in grants and monies raised over the last few years. We continue to apply for new grants and this is a further opportunity to raise additional funds.

How does it work; Our project explains why we need the extension and the benefit it will offer to all members as well as the community. Our wonderful facilities are enjoyed not only by club members but those who visit during community events such as the Gala Day and Fireworks night. We will publicise this far and wide and hope the community will also make donations and benefit from the rewards on offer.

Projects on Crowdfunder can offer rewards in return for pledges, as well as simply collecting donations. Rewards are a brilliant way to say 'thank you' and give people something in return for their support. We are using the Rewards for members to pay their annual membership (all sections of the club - Youth & Adults), social membership, donations of any kind, purchase a brick for the new pavilion, 1-2-1 cricket coaching with Will Sneath, have your CV expertly reviewed, amazing gift box of Chocolate Blondies & Brownies by Tracey Hollywell and many more with more to be added in the coming days and weeks. If you would also like to offer a Reward that can be added to the site and publicise your company or business please do contact

Our site will be live for six weeks (closing date 18th June) and we have set a target of £12,000. Should we reach this target with 75 different supporters then we will be eligible for match funding from Sport England of 30%.

DON'T FORGET: The website automatically includes a tip for platform fees. Prior to payment – click on ‘Enter custom amount’ and ensure you enter £0 and continue.

This will make a massive difference to the club with fundraising limited over the last few years. Please do visit the link above, read about our project, watch the video and enjoy the pictures. Then review the rewards on offer and select the appropriate reward, it's that simple. Please do pay your membership, make a donation or purchase something non cricket related and support those local businesses that are supporting us.

Thank you!
