Teddington Lottery donates £1000 to Hampton Wick Royal Cricket Club


Teddington Lottery is delighted to announce its Community Fund has donated £1000 to the Hampton Wick Royal Cricket Club (HWRCC) crowdfunding campaign towards building temporary accommodation following the devastating fire which burned down the pavilion in early September.

The donation will be matched by Sport England which means the campaign has reached its first £20.000 target.

HWRCC Chair, Sam Kemp said: “The lottery is a very easy way to support local causes and really helps us with our particular fundraising campaign to bring sport back to The Wick as soon as possible.

“With so many grant applications it can take months to actually get the paperwork processed and agreed and this was done in a few days. We are very grateful to the Community Fund of the Teddington Lottery and wish you good luck for the future.”

The Community Fund has also donated £1000 to Teddington Together (www.teddingtontogether.org) which raises money from local businesses to help organise the Christmas Lights Up event, taking place on November 23rd this year.

Teddington Together Director Lucy Rock said: “We are delighted that the Teddington Lottery Community Fund has chosen to support Teddington Together and our Lights Up campaign with such a generous donation. The Lottery is a brilliant way of really supporting local projects and good causes. Thank you. ”
