Buy a Brick to Help Complete New Pavillion at Falkland Cricket Club

Falkland Cricket Club buy a brick

Newbury-based Falkland Cricket Club has launched a crowdfunding campaign to help raise the final £50,000 needed to finish the club’s new pavilion.

The ‘buy-a-brick’ initiative asks supporters to buy a brick to put towards the main construction of the pavilion, with donation packages starting at £25 a brick. If you would like to donate, please visit: www.crowdfunder.co.uk/falkland-new-pavilion.

John Bolan, Chairman of the Falkland CC Trust said: “The Club’s original pavilion was built in the 1970s and a survey condemned the building. It featured only two small communal changing rooms, one very old communal shower facility, and did not have proper heating. The building requires a complete rebuild and expansion to meet our growing needs and ECB standards, such as separate changing facilities for the over 100 girls and women at the Club and easy access to disabled facilities, to name only a few.

“The Club has put a lot of effort already into trying to provide a sustainable resource for the future of our community and we are grateful to those who have supported us along the way. However, we now need the community to come together to help us complete it.”

Due to support from Greenham Common Trust, the ECB and many other charities, local businesses and individual donations, the Club has already raised a large sum of the estimated £1.1 million needed to complete the construction in December this year; however, a £50,000 shortfall means that this amount needs to be raised to complete the building.

Luke Pummell, Direct Sales Manager at Newbury Building Society, one of the club’s supporters, said: “Newbury Building Society and Falkland Cricket Club have a stellar relationship and we proudly support their campaign. As a community-focussed organisation, it only seems right to give members of the public the opportunity to pledge their support by purchasing a brick and is a great initiative to get the wider community involved – not just local cricket fans!”

Falkland Cricket Club Trust is a volunteer-run charity, providing sport, physical activities and social facilities for the local community. The Club, which was formed in 1884, has undergone a dramatic transformation from a gentlemen’s cricket club to a ‘heart of the community’ sports facility, putting itself as one of the key community resources in the local area.
