During the early hours of Saturday 22nd August, the New Brighton Cricket Club was destroyed by a suspicious fire.
Christchurch Metro Cricket are committed to working with the club to ensure they are able to get their teams on the park for the coming season, and we are asking the cricket community to assist where they can.
The club has set up a Give A Little Page for those who would like to make a financial contribution to helping the club get back on their feet. Click here for more.
One of the immediate concerns is for the club to ensure they have enough gear and equipment for playing and training this season. Christchurch Metro Cricket are acting as a drop off point for any donations, so please drop any donations to our offices at 81 Buchanans Road, Hornby, and we will make sure these are passed on to the club. Please note that we are moving offices on September 4th, so make sure donations arrive prior to that date.
At the upcoming Christchurch Metro Cricket Golf Day we will be running a raffle to raise funds for New Brighton, so once again, any donations of prizes will be greatfully recieved.
