CASH FOR SPORT: Clubs celebrate after scooping shares of £20,000

Celebrations are in order for sports clubs across the area which have scooped prizes in the Advertiser's first Cash for Sport scheme.

More than 20 clubs participated in the 10-week token collection in a bid to earn a share of £20,000 to spend developing their sport.

Topping the table was Cookham Dean Football Club, which will be rewarded with the £2,000 first prize after managing 539 tokens for its 60 members.

The money will be split between Cookham Dean's junior and senior teams to fund new kit and equipment.

The runner-up prize of £1,500 will be handed to Holyport Cricket Club which managed to collect 434 tokens for its 53 members.

Some of the money will go towards a bowdry; a piece of equipment that sucks water off a pitch, to allow players to enjoy more cricket.

A further nine clubs will take away a £1,000 grant each, having reached the minimum of three tokens per member needed to qualify.

The money is provided by the Louis Baylis (Maidenhead Advertiser) Charitable Trust, and it is hoped it will help to boost sport across the area.

The following sports clubs collected three tokens or more per member and will receive £1,000 each:

  • Cox Green Indoor Bowls Club
  • Ginga FC
  • Colenorton Dragons
  • Boyne Hill Boys & Girls FC
  • Taplow Cricket Club
  • Maidenhead Magpies FC
  • RBWM Netball Partnership Club (NPC)
  • Windsor Horse Rangers
  • Maidenhead Marlins
