Clitheroe Cricket Club is revamping its clubhouse thanks to a second cash-boost from property developer Taylor Wimpey.

The homebuilder has donated £350 to assist the club in making much-needed improvements over the next few months.

This is the second donation the club has received from the firm following a partnership with its youth division – the Cobras, last season.

Amanda Hall, chairman at Clitheroe Cricket Club, said the donation was hugely appreciated and would really help the club.

We are currently fund-raising to renovate our club house so Taylor Wimpey’s continued support is greatly appreciated.

“The donation will enable us to make some desperate improvements, which we have been hoping to complete for some time.”

Taylor Wimpey currently has homes at a number of Clitheroe-based developments including Low Moor Gardens, Ribble Meadows and Calderstones Vale.

Chloe Dunn, head of sales at Taylor Wimpey Manchester said: “Clitheroe Cricket Club is an extremely important part of the Clitheroe community and with a number of our most popular developments based within a close proximity to the club, we are glad to be of assistance.

“We understand the importance of health and with the club providing sporting facilities to so many adults and children in the region, we couldn’t think of a better establishment to invest in.”

Amanda added: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Taylor Wimpey on behalf of the whole club. Without help from local businesses, we’d struggle to maintain our facilities.”
