A letter from the Lynton & Lynmouth Cricket Club – Can you help?

banner (1)The Lynton & Lynmouth Cricket Club is world famous for its spectacular location in the Valley of Rocks and every year many visitors to Lynton & Lynmouth enjoy a lazy summer afternoon watching a game being played in this beautiful setting. However maintaining the ground to a high standard and complying with the ever increasing health and safety and legal requirements requires substantial funding. As a small club we rely solely on volunteers and fundraising to keep operating.

rightI’m writing to ask if you might be able to support the Lynton & Lynmouth Cricket Club.  All money raised will go towards essential equipment which this year is a replacement roller and safety helmets for the batsmen, wicket keepers and junior club members any additional funds will help cover ground maintenance / insurance costs.

We have various ways for you to support the Club:

By making a small donation – £5.00

Ball sponsorship for a league game – £10.00

Sponsor a team shirt – £15.00

A web entry on the Club’s website – £18.00

Sponsor a cricket helmet – £20.00

A quarter page display advert in the Cricket Club Fixture Card and a web entry, The entry will be displayed on all pages of the Club’s website  – £25.00

Match Tea – either supply the tea or sponsor the cost to supply – £50.00

Payments can be made via the web site  www.lyntonandlynmouthcricketclub.org.uk or by cheque made payable to L&LCC and sent c/o Lynton Tourist Information Centre Town Hall Lynton EX35 6BT

The club issues the fixture card to all members and supporters and they refer to it regularly throughout the season (April to September) to check on forthcoming games as well as the web site for up to date information about games, results and contact details for the club.

This year’s programme will see more than 20 teams visiting the Valley of Rocks ground for league and friendly fixtures.  Supporters of these visiting teams travel to watch the games and often come into Lynton & Lynmouth to have a look around while they are here or stay for the weekend.

I do hope you will consider supporting the club either through advertising your business or by making a personal donation.  We are a registered charity focused on our community role and our aim is to encourage people of all ages and abilities to take up the sport.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,


Susan Bingham
Secretary, L&LCC
