Thetford Town Cricket Club is preparing to take part in NatWest CricketForce on March 27.

NatWest CricketForce is an England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) initiative aimed at rejuvenating local cricket clubs and giving volunteers an opportunity to get involved.

It is the biggest annual volunteering event in sport and is set to attract enough volunteers to fill Lord's Cricket Ground three times over (85,000).

Thetford is expecting around 25 volunteers to offer their support and help with projects such as painting, gardening, cleaning and preparing the ground for the upcoming season, as well as tucking into the free barbecue.

Club chairman Vic Peters said: “NatWest CricketForce will enable much-needed work to take place at our club, ensuring that the 2010 season gets off to the best possible start. Thetford has a very strong youth division and it is crucial that we support the game's development at grass-roots level.

“Improved facilities and a fun environment can be the difference between youngsters staying with cricket or not, and NatWest CricketForce helps make clubs a real focus

for community sports activities and volunteering opportunities.”

If you would like to get involved with volunteering at Thetford Town CC, contact volunteer co-ordinator Peter Terry on 01842 765194 or at peter.terry@pipe-fittings.co.uk
