Alan sent a message to Peter Agne President and CEO, IKEA – email address that said:
I apologise for sending this, but I Played Cricket for Downham and Bellingham, The club is in the Kent League, Thiefs Burgled the club house and then set fire to the Pavilion!! Just for the fun of doing it. I have donated to the Just Giving site to help the rebuilding fund as have many other people and fellow Cricket lovers and clubs have also done.
Without help and donations the Club will not survive. Its crucial that we keep all Cricket alive and give kids the platform to play the game in the UK.
We are looking for sp[sponsorship to help to outfit the interior on reconstruction. I am a n advocate of IKEA, would you consider helping the cause? We are looking for seating, tables etc? Aware you are constantly asked. If you have seconds, returned stock then these would be ideal
Many thanks, in anticipation.
