CULLINGWORTH Cricket Club is bowled over with its latest donation.

The club has received £750 from David Wilson Homes Yorkshire West.

Each month the company is donating up to £1,000 to community causes in the areas where it is building.

Cullingworth Cricket Club is the first beneficiary under the scheme.

The funds are providing new team shirts, and helping buy and maintain training equipment.

Karen Lencki – sales advisor at Hewenden Ridge, near the club – said: “We are delighted to launch the community fund and look forward to cheering the cricket team on at future games!”

Club chairman, George Fletcher, said members were “extremely grateful” for the donation.

He added: “The past couple of years have been quite difficult so this has come at an ideal time, as we make improvements to keep the team going.”
