2023 Fundraising Events

Sponsored Cycle

The Trust was delighted when Fran Ebling, the Radcliffe on Trent Golf Club captain, nominated the BCCT to be his charity for his captain’s year.

Fran had planned a sponsored cycle and Trust CEO Darren Bicknell and fellow rider Susan Anderson joined the adventure. A plan to cycle around 14 South Notts golf clubs hitting a tee shot on all the 1st holes was achieved and a grand total of 76 miles were done, but not many fairways were hit!

Saddle sore and weary, over £5,000 was raised and a big thank you to all. 

Melton Theatre
‘An Evening with Legends’

Our very own Evening with Legends saw us present our own theatre show at Melton Theatre.

Tales from inside the dressing room hosted by BCCT CEO Darren Bicknell and featuring legends, Mike Gatting (Middlesex and England), Matthew Hoggard (Yorkshire and England), Luke Fletcher (Nottinghamshire and Trent Rockets) and Angus Fraser (Middlesex and England).

It was a great fun evening and well supported so thank you to all.

MCC Cricket and Dinner

After a break of 3 years due to Covid we were delighted to welcome back the MCC for our annual cricket match and dinner in the State Dining room at Belvoir Castle.

We won’t mention the cricket! Suffice to say the MCC won and went ahead 7-6 in the series of matches, but we were royally entertained by MCC President Stephen Fry who was great fun.

BCCT Charity Golf Day

Once again Radcliffe on Trent Golf Club hosted the
2023 Trust Charity Golf Day. Excellent weather,
excellent food, excellent company, and some
decent golf was played.

The event was well supported and was won by Andrew Hodgson and his team with a fantastic score obviously using their mulligans well.

A huge thank you to all our sponsors for making the day a great success.

2022 Fundraising Events

Duchess of Rutland XI v MCC Tuesday

The 9th of June saw the annual cricket match against the MCC at the Knipton Cricket Ground.

This is the twelfth match in the series and with the MCC running out winners this year by a comfortable 71 runs it now leaves the series at 6-6!

Congratulations to MCC Captain James Overy for his man of the match performance and thereby winning the Vic Heppenstall Spirit of Cricket award.

The MCC were also presented with the Imogen Skirving Memorial Trophy for winning the game and we look forward to next year and a chance to regain the lead in the series.

Charity Golf Day – at Radcliffe on Trent Golf Club Thursday 1st September

14 teams again participated in the annual BCCT Charity golf day which was a brilliant turnout.

The course was in superb condition, the catering was excellent and judging by the scores so was the golf. Congratulations to Malcolm Barham and his team on a fantastic winning score and we look forward to you defending your trophy in 2023.

Thanks also to Radcliffe on Trent Golf Club for their hospitality and to our two guest speakers, Chris Broad the former Nottinghamshire and England cricketer and Nottingham Forest football legend Nigel Jemson, who delivered a feisty question and answer session.

Finally, a huge thank you to all our sponsors on the day, Freedom Brewery, Bunker Mentality, Slaters Menswear, Staunton Arms, Stick and Ribbon, Notts CCC and Melton Sports.

Sponsored Cycle Ride

On August bank holiday Sunday, nine coaches and supporters of the BCCT cycled 30 miles between the charity’s five Kwik cricket venues, running a kids versus parents match at each one.

The non-stop challenge from Great Dalby to Asfordby to Hose to Croxton Kerrial through to Knipton in the Vale of Belvoir raised over £3,500, a result which cheered all the tired and aching bodies at the end of a long day!

Pictured above with coach Neil Atkins are all our amazing volunteers on the day with some of the kids & parents team at Croxton Kerrial.
