Weʼre raising £10,200 to Purchase a new gang mower for the cricket ground outfield which is home of BFL cricket clubs and Bovey mens, Kids and ladies cricket teams
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The club has been running over 50 years through nothing but hard work from a dedicated voluntary committee, which has seen vast improvements which has been solely from the sports club fundraising events.
Unfortunately, 2019 has seen the end to are very trusted till now 30year old Roberein gang mowers.
We have our lawn keeper who tirelessly puts in hundreds of voluntary hours each year to cut and keep our facilities in a perfect condition for, rugby, cricket, events and all that value what the facility can offer.
At present with not having the gang mower up and running we cannot cut the outfield to a low enough cut, meaning cricket clubs that use the facilities are not happy to continue playing.
The club depends on the rental income of these clubs to stay open all year round.
Without these clubs we cannot offer the facilities we have, we charge a very low rental fee to the residents in the surrounding villages so they can have somewhere on Dartmoor which is beautiful to hold birthdays, weddings, fun days and more.
Without the clubs that pay a yearly rental we would have to put up our rental charges up to others in return meaning they would go elsewhere, and we would lose out again.
We are now trying very desperately to raise the funds in the sum of £10,200.00 to be able to purchase a Baroness LM180C, we have had meetings with local machinery companies at our premises. The gang mower which can be seen in the attached pictures is bran new with 5 years warranty very minimal on maintenance and more than suitable for what we require.
We are asking and hoping that you would be in a position to help this fund so we can eventually purchase the new equipment that is desperately required to keep the cricket clubs at Buckfastleigh Sports Ground.
We thank you for taking the time to read this
