For Life's Great Causes

Raising £10,000 for life’s great causes…

Harpenden Cricket Club is proud to support the Ashtons' For Life’s Great Causes charity campaign, and we would like to ask for your help.

For life’s great causes

Ashtons are actively involved every year in numerous events for local charities and this year is no different. They are now fundraising to reach their target of £10,000 which will be donated to charities within our local community. You can find out more about the For Life’s Great Causes campaign and this year’s Charity Calendar on their website here.

How can you help?

Ashtons would love your help spreading the For Life’s Great Causes word. They are looking for volunteers to have a charity board outside their home for a maximum of 4 weeks in early 2022 (dates will be confirmed shortly) to help promote the campaign. They aim to have as many boards as possible placed around the local area to generate awareness ‘for life’s great causes’.

How are the charities selected?

A shortlist of 20 charities has been compiled from nominations received by the public. An online poll will be open for the public to start voting in early 2022. A preview of the shortlisted charities can be found at lifesgreatcauses.co.uk.

How will the money be distributed?

Rather than just one charity receiving £10,000, Ashtons distribute the funds 50%/30%/20% to the top 3 charities as voted for by the local community. The good news is there’s no need to bungee jump or do anything extreme to raise money!

Personal thanks

Those who offer support via charity boards will automatically be entered into a separate draw where an additional £500 will be provided for the winner to donate to their chosen charity.

All those willing to be involved and help promote this positive community event can sign up here.

A huge thank you from HCC and Ashtons for your support.
