Weʼre raising £50,000 to Rebuild Olicanian Cricket Club's pavilion after it was destroyed in a fire.

Denton Road, Ilkley

What is crowdfunding?

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.


On Saturday 24 August the Olicanian Cricket Club clubhouse was destroyed by a fire. We're home to three senior teams, five junior teams with hundreds of members who are devastated but working hard to try and rebuild. We also house a pre-school nursery which uses the clubhouse outside of the cricket season and has lost its premises.
As an important part of the community we are doing everything we can to get back up and running as soon as possible and we need as much help as we can as the entire club is run by volunteers who give up their own time to keep the club running.
Anything you can give to help will make such a huge difference.

You can contact the club directly by email at

    Hi all It's been a hectic few days so sorry for the delayed update. When we woke up to this terrible news on Sunday morning we were devastated, but it soon became apparent that there was a strength of feeling from everyone associated with the club to come back stronger. I set this page up in the hope that it might help us get some of the way to achieving that goal without knowing what the response would be. You've all been so amazing and generous, I just wanted to say a huge thank you. I'll keep trying to update you going forwards. THANKS
