I am writing to you as the new club president to ask you to support one of the most important fund-raising activities in the history of the Newtown and Chilwell Cricket Club.
At the club’s Annual General Meeting last night – and thanks must go to both David Barnes and through the Australian Sports Foundation – we launched the “Two Blues New Roller Fund’.
The aim of this fund is to cover the purchase of a new roller for the turf wickets at Queens Park – the centre wicket on Stinton Oval, and the practice wickets adjacent to the oval.
Why the need for a new roller?
The existing one is old, in need of constant maintenance and is highly inefficient and time-consuming because of its weight and size.
The new roller will be a ride one roller making it more effective both from a matter of timeliness, and also because of the better quality wickets it will allow us to prepare.
Simply, as part of our on-going commitment to constant improvement, the best wicket in the GCA will continue to get better.
New efficiencies, flexibility and innovation are key part of the way the Newtown and Chilwell Cricket Club needs to operate in an increasingly demanding sporting and community environment.
The cost of the new roller is approximately $30,000.
We’ve already had a number of generous offers to support the project, but we need more.
Please make your own donation, and circulate this request and the details of the project to as many people as you can.
Because this project has been approved by the Australian Sports Foundation, donations are tax deductible.
