Garstang Cricket Club look to complete a significant project each year, alongside their junior cricket programme for coaching and development, so this will go towards both of these initiatives.
Since joining the Wyre Community Lottery, Garstang Cricket Club have raised close to £200 per month, so it has contributed significantly towards funding for their new cricket net development and a new electronic scoreboard.
