New Bradwell Cricket and Football Club has received no income since it closed on March 23, but still has a pile of bills to pay.

A spokesman said: "The challenges of the lockdown are now starting to have a major effect on our financial stability... we are reaching out to the local community and beyond to support us.

"To all the people who have played, won, lost, or socialised at our club, we are asking you to dig deep in these difficult times and donate what you can."

The club still has bills to pay, despite being closed

The spokesman said both clubs bring a great deal to the local community and have existed at the New Bradwell recreation ground since 1969.

"To help us ensure we stay around for the future players, committees, and social members please support us. Any donations will be greatly appreciated," he said.

A fundraising page has been set up for people to make donations here

The club has set a target of £5,000. Already it is more than halfway with £2,615 donated.

The club has been part of the community since 1969
