A local cricket club recently swapped its stumps for golf tees to raise money for Prospect Hospice and Wiltshire Air Ambulance. At its annual golf day on Friday 10 August, Burbage & Easton Royal Cricket Club raised around £1,000, which was split equally between both charities.
The event at Upavon Golf Club was the club’s third year of supporting Prospect Hospice, and attracted eighteen teams competing for prizes. “Everyone was so generous because we all know what a fantastic job the hospice does,” said club member, Jon Chandler (pictured above). “We also know that any one of us or our family and friends may need their support in the future.”
Prospect Hospice cared for Jon’s father three years ago: “The care he received was first class. The nurses were like angels; compassionate beyond words.”
With four senior sides and over a hundred junior members, the club also raised funds for running costs. “We’re a club with big ambitions,” Jon said. “To keep attracting people, we need to upgrade our facilities and playing area.”
The strategy is paying off. “Our first team is in the west of England’s second-highest league. And our second team was promoted this year, so we really want to build on this success.”
Burbage & Easton Royal Cricket Club is keen to hear from people who want to get in on the action. “We’re always open to new members of all ages and we’re looking to start a girls team,” said Jon. To find out more and get in touch, visit www.bercc.com
