Weʼve raised £0 to construct a female changing area and effect repairs to our ground equipment that has been mindlessly damaged by vandals.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

Offerton Cricket Club is a not for profit organisation, run entirely by committed volunteers, whose stated aim is to facilitate affordable cricket for all regardless of age, gender, race or ability.
The club are represented by two senior XI's in the Derbyshire and Cheshire Cricket League, a veterans XI and have a thriving junior section fielding three teams during 2017 with the potential for more in 2018.
Our picturesque ground, 'The Paddock' is a wonderful community asset, serving a number of local schools and hosting charity events for the likes of Stockport County every year.
Running our club with limited funds is challenging. This year, after almost 100 years in existence, with the support of the ECB the club were able to invest in mobile covers to ensure our facility can be used to its maximum potential. Unfortunately the covers were subsequently vandalised within three weeks. We are faced with heavy bills to repair this vital equipment, without which an amount of cricket activity will be curtailed.
We have many female players at junior level. We now desperately need to construct bespoke changing facilities o allow further progression in all age groups.
We encourage you to utilise the fantastic facility on your doorstep.
Please support your only local Cricket Club and help us improve our facilities.
