    Weʼve raised £3,101 to Help Kirkstall Educational Cricket Club - We have fallen victim to our 18th burglary in only 5 years..

    Funded on Tuesday, 2nd February 2021

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Established in 1853, Kirkstall Educational Cricket club have been operating from their Queenswood drive location since 1857 and are recognised as one of the oldest Clubs in the county (even predating Yorkshire County CC). Known to many as “The Eddies” we cater for three senior cricket teams (playing in the Airedale and Wharfedale Senior League), a thriving junior section (approx. 120 members) and a range of social groups, therefore making a significant contribution to the well-being of many people in the local community.

    Sadly, over the last 5 years, the club has been plagued by burglaries and acts of vandalism; we have experienced over 18 burglaries to the clubhouse and equipment storage in this time. To combat these burglaries we are continuously updating our security systems and we are currently awaiting planning permission for the installation of new gates to the entrance of the facilities. Unfortunately, this has been too late, as on the weekend of the 4th Oct we experienced our worst break-in to date. Although having stringent security measures in place to protect the clubs storage unit, the burglars still managed to break in and we have lost approximately 70% of the equipment essential to continue to provide some of the best pitches in Yorkshire. This may result in our teams being unable to play cricket over the next year.

    We are therefore, with deep regret, asking for your assistance. Please support us in any way that you can so that we can continue to support our members and local community, providing a safe place to play the sport loved by many as we have for over 167 years. Help us to bounce back and prove that we are stronger than these burglaries!

    Thank you!
