In way of background Information about the initiative -
The Jewson CricketForce Scheme is a club-based initiative aimed at rejuvenating Scotland`s cricketing facilities by encouraging cricket supporters, local communities, and their friends and families to volunteer to undertake renovations at their local cricket club in the lead up to the season. The scheme follows in the footsteps of a similar programme run by the ECB that has been hugely successful in promoting the profile of club cricket.
We are hoping that
as many cricket clubs sign up to the event and use it as a great opportunity to prepare their facilities and bring together their membership and communities for the start of the season.
The ECB ‘NatWest CricketForce’ has been running since 2005, and has been very successful in encouraging clubs to engage with its local community to gain new volunteers and renovate club facilities. NatWest CricketForce is now the biggest volunteering event in England.
