The Charities we will be supporting with your donations

The Blunham Playing fields are home to the Blunham Cricket Club. The Blunham Playing fields belong to the village of Blunham and are managed by a group of Trustees who form the BPFA. The BPFA is a registered charity and will be the main beneficiary of the fundraising. Working together the Blunham Playing Fields Association and Blunham Cricket Club have in the past 2 years been able to raise over 150 K to enable the current pavilion to be refurbished.

The old pavilion was inadequate. It was in very poor state of repair. It now provides toilets and changing rooms, storage for equipment, as well as a bar and kitchen. The facilities are much needed as the Cricket Club is thriving. Founded in 1900 The Cricket Club coaches Boys and Girls from age 6 and has teams competing at under 10, under 12 and under 14. This is in addition to the 3 senior teams. During the 2009 Cricket season 72 matches were played at the Blunham ground. During the winter months the playing field is used by our fledging youth football team AFC Blunham. The improvement in facilities will help to attract more interest and support for their club. The pavilion, whilst conceived around the use for sports activities will be available for use by the community for functions and meetings. Having raised most of the funds needed an additional sum is now required to fully complete the project.

Breast cancer is now the most common cancer in the UK and almost 46,000 new cases are diagnosed every year. Cancer Research UK is the largest single funder of Breast Cancer Research in the UK. Thanks to improved detection and better treatments, more people are beating breast cancer than ever before and now 8 out of 10 breast cancer patients survive beyond five years.

Around 37,000 men are diagnosed with a male-specific cancer each year; from sons to grandfathers, men face the risk of prostate, penile or testicular cancer. Orchid plays a leading role in the fight against male cancer through research and awareness and by supporting patients.

Part of the Sue Ryder Care Organisation. The Hospice at Moggerhanger (next-door village to Blunham), provides short term palliative care for patients with a life limiting illness including Cancer, Motor Neurone Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and organ failure.
