Based in Ballykelly, The Nedd is a local friendly cricket club with approx. 25 members aged 14+ who come together to play as one senior team in the NW League. As a small club with minimal funds to carry out routine maintenance work or update their facilities – and the pandemic preventing usual fund-raising activities, they applied for assistance in the purchase of a new scorers’ hut and wicket cover, plus materials to help bring their pavilion up to scratch ahead of a new season. The Committee offered a grant of £600 obo The Drapers’ Company. The Club Chairman wrote in May 2021 offering his sincere thanks for the grant and confirmed that it had been a huge help in enhancing facilities.
