Exmouth Cricket Club feels the force with NatWest

Players and officials at Exmouth Cricket Club were celebrating on Saturday after receiving a £500 'thank you' from NatWest.

01 August 2011

It follows the Club's recent involvement in NatWest's CricketForce weekend - the largest volunteer event in sport - aimed at rejuvenating local cricket clubs across the country. During the weekend, Craig Conner from NatWest's Exmouth branch swapped his uniform for overalls to join other volunteers to help give the club a makeover ahead of the 2011 season. In recognition of Craig's efforts, NatWest has given the Club a £500 NatWest Community Cashback Award.

The NatWest Community Cashback Award scheme pays out awards ranging from £100 to £1,000 to individual employees and teams who make a difference to their communities by fundraising, helping and managing local organisations and charities.

Commenting on the donation, Craig Conner, Team Leader at NatWest's Exmouth Branch said: "We all worked really hard, but had a lot of fun too and it's great to see what we achieved for Exmouth Cricket Club in such a short space of time. NatWest is committed to investing in the community and, together with the ECB, we recognise the huge contribution volunteers make to cricket. Therefore being able to hand across this £500 to help them even further really puts the icing on the cake, or should I say the spin on the ball!"

NatWest CricketForce is an award wining grassroots initiative, in partnership with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), which has snowballed in popularity since it began in 2002. In 2010 1,642 clubs and 87,000 volunteers took part and early indications show that the 2011 NatWest CricketForce event was just as big.
