CricketForce comes to Kent

Kent supporters are being given the opportunity to get involved at their Canterbury ground by volunteering to help tidy up before the new season starts as part of NatWest CricketForce.

Come and see players warming up pre-season, weather permitting, and it is hoped that some of them will be working alongside volunteers.

Anyone can volunteer to get involved on the day, so come on your own or bring friends and family to muck in.

Canterbury

Volunteers can come and help give Canterbury a quick makeover before the new season starts

There are numerous jobs to be done - some will take moments, others may take all morning, or all day. If you have any particular skills (trade) please make this known before the event. Any time that can be given will help and be greatly appreciated.

All volunteers will be entitled to two free tickets to Kent v Scotland on Bank Holiday Monday, May 4, plus the chance to win the use of a box with other workers from the day.

There are limited spaces on these events so to avoid disappointment please show your interest at the earliest opportunity. The deadline for entering is Monday March 16.

NatWest CricketForce encourages cricket supporters, their friends and families to give something back to their local community cricket club by volunteering to undertake major renovations to clubhouses and grounds.

Last year attracted a record 1,375 clubs (225 up on 2007), 85,000 volunteers (5,000 up on 2007) and an estimated £35-£40 million in cash and kind (an increase of up to £5million on the previous year).

Those figures are expected to rise again this year.
