Founders Fund to close on 1st September

Updated: Sep 27, 2020

The unique Founders Fund has reached a very impressive and way-beyond-expectations total of £500 and the decision has been taken to close the Fund next Tuesday (1st September). The Fund was set up to raise sufficient funding to purchase a trophy to be awarded to the Champions of the Winter League and will be a perpetual trophy to be competed for annually.

At the recent Management Committee meeting members agreed to commit up to 50% of the Fund to the purchase of the Founders Cup. In addition, small individual trophies will be presented to up to six members of the winning team.

We are most grateful to all those that have donated most generously to put the Winter League on a firm financial footing and contributed to the cost of a most prestigious trophy. Thank you, your names will always be associated with this trophy.

The full List of Founders is: Tony Lockwood (Lowerhouses), Mike Ralph (Springwood), Bob Haigh (Hudd.Rec.Club), Jeff Jacklin (Kirkheaton Con), Margaret & Mike Pointon (Hudd.Rec.Club), Philip Walker (Lindley BC), Brian Faichney (Hudd.Rec.Club), Jim Baxter (Milnsbridge), Alan Hobson (Thorpe Green), Glynis Philbin (Lindley BC), Allan Dobson (Kirkheaton C&BC), Anon (of Dalton), David Watts (Meltham), Peter Swinden (Meltham), Jeff Mellor (Springwood), David Union (Outlane), Bill Blackburn (Lindley BC), Peter Hellawell (Hudd.Rec.Club) and Karen Rausse (Lindley BC).

Still a few days left to complete making your donation and adding your name to the List of Founders. Cheques can be made out to Robert Haigh and sent to his home address or pushed through his letterbox or, if you prefer to make a BACS transfer then please email Bob for his bank account details at
