Fans will be able to play alongside the current
Gloucestershire CCC squad at a golf day to support grass roots cricket.
The event at Cirencester Golf Club on March 14 will raise
money for the Gloucestershire Cricket Board's (GCB) county youth programme and
a number of its other community and school projects.
For £140 you can enter a team of four or a team of three
plus a member of the Gloucestershire playing or coaching staff. The entry fee
also includes refreshments and a bacon roll on arrival, a two course dinner and
entry into a prize raffle.
Gloucestershire Cricket Board chief executive Steve Silk said:
"This should be a wonderful event and we are hugely grateful to the
Gloucestershire players and staff for giving up their time to support the work
we do developing cricket across the county.
"This is a great opportunity for supporters to rub shoulders
with their heroes and play on one of the county's top golf courses. Whether you
are a cricket club with a number of keen golfers or a business looking to
entertain clients, this will be a fantastic day out."
There are 24 four balls available with tee times between 9am
and 12pm. Slots are available on a first come, first served basis by ringing
Steve on 07554 45228 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will also be a series of competitions throughout the
day with prizes for the individual winner, team winner, nearest
the pin and nearest the pin with a cricket bat, longest drive and most points
with a yellow ball.
Steve said: "I am sure there will be plenty of friendly
rivalry between our cricket clubs to prove which is the best on the golf course
and we look forward to finding out on March 14.
"As a not for profit
organisation we are reliant on grants and fundraising for all our projects so
events like these can have a really powerful impact on the work we do. What
could be better than playing on a picturesque golf course, meeting the current
GCCC squad and doing your bit for Gloucestershire cricket at the same time?"
