News regarding the Raceday Bucket Collection.
The Raceday Bucket Collection is fast approaching. This year, we will be collecting on the second day of the Music Showcase Weekend, scheduled for Saturday 23rd July. York Racecourse allow us to raise money outside the venue, and in the past, has been very successful in terms of money raised. In 2015 – we managed to collect £4678.21.
In the past we have had two collection teams – one to collect money just after the races themselves have finished from around 16:30 – 18:00 and another from 18:00-19:30 after the music act has finished. We’ve seen in the past that racegoers still continue to give generously at these sorts of times, so we hope to have as many juniors, parents and seniors raising as much money for the cricket club as possible.
We would like as many young club members as possible to participate; especially as the race-goers do give more generously to young players dressed in their cricket whites. Young players must be accompanied by an adult. Whichever junior player collects the most money, will receive a Cricketing related prize.
If you’re able to help us out, please let me or another junior coach at training know. Any help we receive here is greatly appreciated.
