Weʼre raising £1,000 to allow Whitley Hall to grow the Club & especially its junior & female sections by allowing practice & games too take place at the same time.

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 Annual Tipple Trot will take place Friday 24th July with 12 Whitley Walkers led by Andrew Tipple and including Chairman John Cave walking the 25 miles from Baxter's Field to Wakefield Thornes CC.
The club is raising funds towards building a New Off Field New facility alongside supporting the club through the current pandemic. The growth of the club and the addition of a ladies section, the hugely successful All Stars Programme running alongside our 4 junior and 3 senior sides has meant the ground does not have the capacity to hold the fixtures and practice session required for the volume of players and teams we now have.
The main driving force for the new facility is providing the club with the ability to host both practice and games on the ground simultaneous. With the number of junior and senior teams rising and the addition of games being rearranged due to the good old English weather this has meant fixtures (and re-arranged fixtures) taking priorities over practice sessions.
The reduction of training opportunities has a negative impact on the experience we can offer and moreover the development of the players involved. Whilst we try to re-arrange practice sessions when possible, the constant changing dates of these also has a negative impact on numbers.
The new facility would allow the club to organise a consistent practice calendar greatly improving the development and experience of our players and moreover means we can use the ground for games or on non match days have group practice on the main ground and specialist dedicated one to one practice on the off field facility.
Local Schools also use our facility for there kwik cricket festivals and would be in support of such a facility and moreover ECB insight has shown the Womens and Girls Section, that we are trying to expand, placed practice in a comfortable and safe environment high on there priority list and this facility would aid greatly in our aims to grow this section and the sport as a whole within the community.
