Sacriston Colliery Cricket Club

After years of longing for better facilities but failing to find resources, Sacriston Cricket Club received a grant to help develop their club.

The cricket club is used by a wide range of people, from children learning to play cricket to visiting teams from the cricket league. With over 500 users the cricket club’s changing rooms are well used but outdated and they weren’t meeting the requirements of the club.

Sacriston Colliery Cricket Club received a grant of £5,000 to help build new changing facilities for its members.

Since the refurbishment, the club has attracted new Management Committee members, volunteers to help ground staff, and 10-15 more children each week for the coaching programme.

“Thank you so much for the grant. This was a huge project for the club and without your support it may never have happened.”
