We are delighted to announce that we have been selected as one of Waitrose' Community Matters schemes for the month of June. Each month the supermarket selects 3 schemes for the community to support, all people have to do is put the green pennies that are available at the checkouts into the sections in the clear plastic collection container found in store.
The Waitrose that we can be found in is the FRIMLEY branch so if you do your weekly shopping in there or just need a pint of milk then please remember to grab your penny and support your club. Each penny will be turned into a pound and will directly help the Colts section.
Here is the information that can be found on our section.
Camberley Cricket Club
Camberley Cricket Club has been providing opportunities for the local community both to play and watch cricket for almost 70 years. Our membership comprises all age groups and we field both Colts and senior sides in competitive cricket leagues throughout Surrey.
This season we are extending our scope of activities by introducing two new initiatives aimed at bringing the sport to a wider audience. We are introducing a girls and ladies section into the club, providing regular coaching sessions and hopefully this will lead to arranging teams in Surrey based girls and ladies cricket leagues.
This year we are also bringing the game to the younger age groups with our ‘Camberley Crickets’. Each Saturday morning we will be running a coaching session for children between 6 and 8 years old hoping that they enjoy their experience and continue as members of our Colts section.
Funding these initiatives involves considerable costs associated with coaching and cricketing equipment and we are pleased that Waitrose have agreed to offer this opportunity to help us raise funds for the wider benefit of the local community.
