Fundraising for our Club

The running of any club relies upon the goodwill and generosity of its members, not only for their annual membership subscription but also their participation in various of the fundraising activities that we hold throughout the year. In the main this income covers our day to day costs and general maintenance but can leave us exposed when an item of unexpected expenditure arises or when there are improvements needed to the fabric of our clubhouse.

In terms of fundraising our club holds several activities during a year such as Quiz Night, Race Night, Cheese & Wine evening, coffee mornings. To supplement our income, we have applied for the following grants

Awards Granted

Tesco Bags for Help


Awarded £1000 in March 2018 towards the cost of providing a new electrical consumer unit.

South Cambs District Council, Community Chest


Awarded £1000 in June 2018 for a replacement mower to cut the banks and edges. it will be a great help to our volunteers to be able to use a new machine for this.

South Cambs District Council, Sustainable Energy Grant


£2400 awarded in June 2018 for LED lights in the Club House. This work was carried out in October, and means the lighting is brighter and more efficient as well as saving the Club in running costs.

Applications Pending

Meldreth Futures – Running Costs


We have applied to Meldreth Parish Council for a grant towards the general running costs of the Club, and this will release funds for any essential repairs and improvements.

Meldreth Futures – Mower for the Green


We have also applied to Meldreth Parish Council for a grant to replace our existing green cutting mower. The new mower will be a sophisticated, specialist and essential piece of equipment. For any bowls club the green is the most important part of its facilities, so we are hoping that we will soon be able to purchase a new mower to provide an excellent surface to bowl on, not only our own members but also the many opponents that visit us over the course of a season.
