Fundraising Effort for DCC Women's Ground
We have exciting news for you all.
At the end of March, Dulwich CC formally took control of the Griffin Sports Ground in Dulwich Village, together with our partners at Lambeth Tigers FC. The charity we established together, the London Youth Sports Trust, has signed a 30-year lease with the Dulwich Estate. DCC will be the principal summer user, and we will be playing cricket there this summer!
It’s a development will transform the future of our club, and the future of women’s cricket and racially inclusive cricket in London. The cricket facilities at the Griffin will be completely redeveloped, and the ground will be home to our Women’s and Girls’ teams, as well as being used by the senior men and boys, allowing us to significantly enhance all our cricket programmes.
We will also be using the Griffin to advance racial and social diversity in cricket in partnership with black cricket clubs and organisations, and local state schools. We all know this is an urgent priority for our sport, as has been highlighted by the Azeem Rafiq case.
Now, we’re asking for your help to make the most of this outstanding opportunity.
Together with our partners, we need to raise £100,000 as the final tranche of funding we need to get the Griffin going – and we would be enormously grateful for your generosity and support with the Get the Griffin Going Appeal. Please click here for further information.
