Dear valued supporters, friends and organisers of our wonderful annual Charity event, as you are all aware we have been living in very uncertain times, and continue to do so for a little longer. However, we are starting to see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel, but we are not there yet!
The committee was hoping that we would be able to bring better news for 2021, but with the current situation and timings, we have to announce that the Alton Charity Cricket 2021 will have to be cancelled, but fingers crossed we will be able to return to a more normal event for 26th June 2022.
We continue to receive questions, queries and offers of support from many of our sponsors, local businesses, and the people of Alton who want to be involved with the next event. However, we are very mindful that the local businesses will be picking themselves up from not being able to trade for the past 12 months.
How little did we know that the 2019 charity beneficiary, Alton Counselling Service, would be so vital to our community to help the people of Alton through such difficult times.
Since 1983, the Alton Victorian Charity Cricket event has raised tens of thousands of pounds for local charities that support the people of Alton and surrounding area. The decision was taken that 2020 chosen charity Home-Start Weywater will, obviously, be the 2022 charity that our event will support. Home-Start Weywater do great work with families and young members of our community.
If you would like to get involved with submitting a team, sponsoring the event, advertising your business or want to join the committee, please send us a message.
Stay safe and be Kind
Chair of 2021 Organising Committee
