J Bennett & Son supports local sports club in funding bid

Vote for Thame Cricket Club and Day Centre in the AVIVA community fund

Thame Town Cricket Club and Thame Tennis and Bowls Club  are looking for local support in a public vote for their AVIVA community fund application.  The Fund is offering the chance for important causes in the local community to get funding for their community projects.

At J Bennett and Son we have been an active sponsor of the cricket club supporting them regularly in their Open Day events, Summer Balls and Christmas Auctions.  This funding would have a direct impact on the community clubs and local groups.

If successful in their bid the grant would go towards fitting out the first floor of the cricket clubhouse which will be used by community groups and charities such as The Thame & District Day Centre and Thame Red Kite centre.

The Tennis and bowls club plan to use the funding to go towards fitting out the main community room in their rebuilt clubhouse which would be used by local community groups such as parent and baby groups and art classes.

Matt Swain, chair of the Thame Town Cricket Club said  “In common with many parts of the Country, recent years have seen continued cuts to services like day care and childcare. Both the Thame & District Day Centre and Thame Red Kite centre are having their funding from Oxfordshire County Council reduced significantly. They currently provide a valuable service to our community for some of the most vulnerable groups in society. Our new clubhouse facility will provide an opportunity for these types of local community groups and charities to continue to deliver high quality provision to the Thame community in a suitable and sustainable environment.”

We need your vote.

So to help Thame Town Cricket Club and Thame Tennis and Bowls Club be successful in their funding application we just need a few minutes of your time. If they receive enough votes they will be entered into the national finals and judged by a panel for a chance to receive up to £25,000.

The closing date is 21st November 2017 so please get voting now.
