Cricklade Sportsmens Association

A picture for Cricklade-Sportsmens-Association

Cricklade sports dinners are organised by three locals, John Harman, Rod Kensett and Martin Bickell who have been running the three events per year for more than 17 years. Our aim is to have fun, see and hear from sporting heroes whilst raising money to support good causes and disadvantaged people in the Cricklade community. Other than funds pledged to causes, such as the Cricklade Link Scheme, money raised from the sports dinners is accumulated and organisations, groups and individuals within the community approach us as and when they are in need of help.

Although we only hold three events a year, in the last 17 years we have raised and given away more than 40,000. This has all resulted from the contributions of our 200+ guests and the support of our loyal sponsors. We are very grateful to Hoburne Cotswold for their help with the organisation of each evening and the excellent three course meal that they provide.

We are grateful for the continued enthusiasm of all our regular guests for these events (two of whom have attended every event), their support in providing prizes for our raffles and quizzes and support for our auctions; all of which provides the money which we give away and keeps the ticket cost within manageable limits. Over the years speakers have ranged from Matt Le Tissier and Gareth Edwards to Dennis Lillie to Jimmy Greaves, from Earnie Shavers, Willie John McBride and Nobby Stiles to Gordon Banks, Jim Watt, John Parrot and Johnny Francombe. Great speakers complemented at each event by an excellent comedian. Attendance by invitation.
