After a long, wet, challenging season, the Kingfisher Beer Cup is down to the penultimate stages with the semi-finals due to take place on 26th August. York CC will be hosting Bamford Fieldhouse CC and Havant CC will be hosting Wanstead & Snarebrook CC for what is set to be a tense weekend!
Sunday 26th August also coincides with the NatWest CricketForce Fundraiser weekend - an annual initiative encouraging cricket clubs to organise fundraising activities to generate valuable funds to invest in cricket equipment, facilities and coaching. Fundraising can take place at any time of the year and on any scale, but NatWest and the ECB are encouraging clubs to utilise the August Bank Holiday weekend (25th-27th) and join the hundreds of other clubs who are drawing on the support of their members, friends and communities in a weekend of fundraising fun. To register your club’s event please visit www.ecb.co.uk/fundraiser .
And to make your fundraising efforts even more enjoyable, those kind people at Kingfisher, India’s No. 1 beer, have also launched a fantastic fundraising initiative this year: the ‘Kingfisher Quiz & Curry Night’ – a free, downloadable, interactive quiz pack.
Over 700 clubs have now registered for the quiz – providing them access to the fully downloadable quiz pack which includes; an interactive sports quiz video, hosted by Kingfisher’s brand ambassador Graeme Swann and a number of PCA Ambassadors, plus everything else clubs may need to carry out their best Quiz & Curry night yet; from handy tips, posters and ticket templates to the video quiz itself and question and answer sheets. For more details please go to the Cricket section at www.kingfisherbeer.co.uk where you can register your club and download the Quiz for free.
Who said fundraising couldn’t be fun!
