HOW YOU CAN HELP US SUPPORT ‘GRASS ROOTS’ COMMUNITY CRICKET CLUBS AND THE FUTURE OF THE RECREATIONAL GAME!!

Individuals wishing to become registered Sponsors, Donors, Benefactors and Patrons of International Community Cricket Trust in order to support the activities of On-Side Cricket and/or the International Institute of Cricket Umpiring & Scoring, can now do so through ‘GIFT AID’.

‘GIFT AID’ is a government scheme approved by H.M. Revenue & Customs to encourage individuals and businesses to donate more money to charity. Under this scheme, International Community Cricket Trust is able to claim back the basic rate tax already paid on gifts of money received from individuals who pay, or who have paid, UK tax. It also allows UK companies to make gifts of money to International Community Cricket Trust before any tax is deducted.

Each ‘GIFT AID’ supporter will receive a ‘Thank You’ Certificate; be named – unless they request specifically not to be included – on the Trust’s Role of Supporters on the website; and receive regular updates and progress reports on the consortium’s activities.

Community Cricket – and ‘grass roots’ community cricket clubs in particular – throughout the United Kingdom desperately need the comprehensive range of not-for-profit support services, facilities and additional resources that our International Community Cricket Trust-led Consortium is starting to phase-in and intends to develop to cover all parts of the United Kingdom over the next 3 years (2008-2011). We, in turn, need YOUR support to help us succeed – not only in overcoming the inevitable obstacles that we shall encounter en route, but also in fulfilling the necessarily challenging, time-tabled, programme and targets we have set ourselves.

You can help us, today, by completing the ‘GIFT AID’ Declaration Form and return it to:
