Midshire is sponsoring the Charlesworth & Chisworth Cricket Club for the 2018/2019 season. Formed from the amalgamation of the Charlesworth and Chisworth Clubs in 1895, the joint team now has two senior, three junior, and a ladies team, who all compete in the Derbyshire and Cheshire Cricket League at various levels.
Located in the Bankside area of Charlesworth, the small village club uses a modern facility complete with function rooms, a quirky bar, and kitchen space, all run by dedicated volunteers, who rely almost entirely on donations from fundraising initiatives and sponsorship support.
Managing Director, Julian Stafford, said: “We actually got to know the club because one of our ex-employees plays for them, their passion for the game really shines through. At Midshire, we’re passionate about healthy initiatives and encouraging healthy living, so when the opportunity came to sponsor Charlesworth & Chisworth we jumped at it!”
