Sicklinghall Primary School fundraising

11th March, 2017

Over the past few months the pupils at the village school have been helping fundraise towards the rebuilding of the village cricket clubhouse after the devastating fire last October. Their first fundraiser was to donate all the proceeds of the end of term bun sale to the project, £20.00 and amazingly to bring together table top stalls at a Christmas film night which raised over £500.00.

 

As a thank you for the children’s energy and enthusiasm, the Club Chairman, Zai Ali, invited some special guests to come along with him to a cricketing themed assembly. Elliot Callis from Yorkshire CC and Katie Thompson from Yorkshire Diamond’s (KIA Super League) called into school in January. Both cricketers talked to the children about how their careers started and what they enjoyed most about the sport. Katie and Elliott also signed some autographs and were pleased to answer questions from the pupils.

 

The club has registered an Under 9’s team in the Wetherby League for the first time in 20 years.
