Aviva Funding – Repairs to Bowlers Run up to Outdoor Nets

Posted 22 October 2016 08:25 by peter.j.reynolds

I have applied for funding to Aviva for £10,000 so the bowlers run ups can be replaced to the outdoor net facility with artificial strips. In order to try to obtain funding we have to obtain as many votes as we can from today until Mid November.

You can cast up to 10 votes each just by clicking on the link below, then registrering, then search under ‘Rainham’ (make sure you choose our Rainhm Essex project for the bowlers run up and not the Rainham Kent project) and then cast your 10 votes.

Please use social media and tell family and friends so we can obtain as many votes as possible, as the most votes will receive the funding.
