Weʼre raising £20,000 to help fund new cricket nets for the girls, boys and adult teams of Painswick Cricket Club

Painswick, Gloucestershire

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


2020 is continuing to be a big year for fundraising at Painswick Cricket Club - with amazing support to date - including the fabulous sponsored walk from Painswick to Lords, the home of cricket.

We’re raising money to fund the development of two new nets which are an essential element of supporting and building our senior and junior cricket teams. They will be situated in place of the current nets, which are old and no longer adequate.

Painswick Cricket Club 100 mile challenge

Three players from Painswick Cricket Club in Gloucestershire have just completed their walking challenge from the cricket ground to Lords cricket ground in London (100 miles in total)

They are doing it to help raise money for the net bay to be developed at the ground. The three players Dom Barnard (teacher at Cashes Green in Stroud), Tom Hayward (teacher at Coopers Edge in Gloucester) and George Macduff (teacher training at Gloucestershire University) undertook the challenge in the first weekend of their October half term. They set out from their home ground in Painswick on Saturday 24th October at 5:00 am and arrived at Lord's 3:15pm on Monday 26th October.

All regularly represent the club, who this year have run up to 4 Saturday teams, Sunday and midweek teams alongside the junior sides. Dom has been a youth coach at Painswick for the last 20 years and both George and Tom have helped with the coaching over the last 6 years, George having played for the club since he was 7. They all know how important the new nets are to the development of cricket for the youngsters of Painswick and the surrounding areas. Every penny raised will go towards the net fundraising and help the club towards their target.

It proved to be a hard challenge but the lads were relieved to reach the famous old stadium and finally put their feet up over a well deserved beer.

Thanks to all the supporters along the route, transportation, beers, sponsorship and good wishes.

Please see below sample photo's of Tom, George and Dom in their Painswick training tops and fleeces en route and at the final destination.

Our ambitions and other activity

To achieve this ambition, and give our club the support it needs, we need to raise £30,000 and we would ideally like to install the nets for the start of the 2021 season, given the impact of the Coronavirus..

We’re working with both the English Cricket Board (ECB), the Gloucestershire Cricket Board (GCB) and other funding bodies, which we hope will cover a significant amount of the cost but we’re also looking to raise at least 50% of the cost ourselves

This might sound like a big challenge, but with the help of the local community, we believe we can succeed and deliver the nets within the tight timeframe.

Please look out for and support our fundraising activities including supporting the walk even now completed over the next few months - or sign up to Painswick Cricket Club Net Fundraising [], which means you can raise FREE donations for us every time you shop online.
