About Kent Recreational Cricket Welfare Trust
Since its inception the Trust has been pleased to offer loans to many of our Kent Cricket Clubs to help towards making improvements in whatever way necessary.
Young players, up to the age of 18, male or female, and including disabled, have also benefited from small grants for assistance with the costs of playing cricket. This has taken the form of helping with equipment, clothing and/or travelling costs.
Each year the Trust asks for nominations from clubs for an Alan Albury Award (Alan was a founder member of the Trust). The Award is to recognise outstanding contributions to cricket over many years; this can include behind the scenes work; to honour tea ladies, etc. The Trustees can select 10 deserving persons per year, who are invited, along with a guest, to a special day, including lunch, at a County match at the County club. They are presented with a framed citation by a well-known personality from Kent Cricket.
•Is your club in need of a small loan to tide you over a difficult period – i.e. has your ground equipment let you down? Does your pavilion need some repairs?
•Is your Club embarking on the Young Leaders in Cricket Programme, which is the equivalent of and recognised by the DofE? Funding sponsorship could be available.
•Does your club have a young player under the age of 18 who wants to play cricket, but are struggling to meet the costs of equipment, clothing, travel costs, etc?
