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.

In total, 1,050 clubs across England and Wales registered to take part in NatWest CricketForce 2006 over the weekend of April 8/9, seeing around 70,000 volunteers at work, and bringing £25 million worth of investment to clubs from the local community and businesses.

The first 1000 clubs registered received FREE OF CHARGE from ECB and NatWest a registration pack including a number of T-shirts, a commemorative plaque and the fabulous hardbound book ‘Cricket – Celebrating the Modern Game Around the World’.
