Grant for Cricket Club –

B&F Cricket Club secure grant support for COVID-19 pandemic 

Badby and Farthingstone Cricket Club have been awarded £1,130 of National Lottery Funding from Sport England’s Community Emergency Fund towards its funding needs during the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.

In response to the pandemic, Sport England announced a £195m package to help the sport and physical activity sector through covid-19. Within the package is a £20m Community Emergency Fund, of National Lottery money to deliver immediate funding to those who have a role in supporting the nation to be active but are experiencing short-term financial hardship.

The grant will allow the club to cover its insurance costs, maintenance, and repair of ground care equipment until cricket can resume.  

The club is still hopeful of some match action this summer. The nets and outfield are now being used for practice as part of daily exercise with social distancing rules in place.
