The closing date for the Junior League's 'Match It' appeal is exactly 5 weeks today and it is still around £2,000 short of its £5,000 target. Any amount up to £5,000 will be matched by the Kirklees One Community 'Match It' scheme with the potential for a total £10,000 to go to the League to encourage and facilitate Under-16s taking up our sport.
Over £2,000 has been donated through the Just Giving page which makes life easier for collecting donations from individuals, clubs, leagues and businesses. A further £1,000 has been received through direct donations but there is still much work to do to hit the ultimate target.
'Restart in 2021' is a campaign to attract young bowlers to the sport after a torrid year. All the money raised through the Match It project will be used to re-energise the push to get youngsters to play crown green bowls and introduce the many benefits to a wider audience.
League Secretary, Geoff Martin, has ambitious plans to use the money raised to galvanise local junior bowling and you can read what those plans are and how you can help by following this link. The League is very grateful for every individual, club and league that continues to support this venture which will set the league up with the best possible chance of extending its numbers and helping to secure the future of bowling in Huddersfield.
The fund has now passed the £3,000 milestone including these donations from Huddersfield organisations:
