WHY SPONSOR US?
As a successful, self-financing club, West Mersea Cricket Club's only source of income (other than holding fundraising events) is by relying on the generosity of local individuals and businesses to provide funding. Providing quality opportunities and experiences for players, does come at a high cost to the club and, without these contributions, the club would not be able to exist in its current form or be able to achieve the goals it has set for itself in the medium to long term.
The club is not-for-profit and reinvests all monies raised back into the club for the good of the community.
