Donaghcloney Mill Cricket Club, Co. Down

Since the amalgamation in 2017 of Donaghcloney CC and Millpark CC, the new Donaghcloney Mill Cricket Club has worked tirelessly to continue offering high quality and accessible sporting and leisure opportunities for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds in a largely rural area.  It has also successfully facilitated a multi-sports summer scheme for local youngsters three days a week during the summer holidays, promoting the benefits of physical activity, teamwork and communication skills.  With some 160 members, this amateur Club requires additional cricket balls, bats, gloves and helmets for their youth section ahead of the new cricket season – to bring them into line with regulations and meet requirements for competitive matches.  A Clothworkers’ grant of £600 was awarded.
