Leading highways service provider, Ringway, and a team of over 300 volunteers - including a few famous faces - have helped to restore the driveway at Witham Cricket Club in Essex ahead of the new cricket season.
As part of the NatWest CricketForce campaign to restore cricket club facilities, Ringway worked for two days with operatives from its supply chain partners, McDonald Highway Services, to lay the edging for the clubs driveway and subsequently laid the heavy loads of stone between the new timber edgings.
Among the volunteers were England internationals Steven Finn, Charlotte Edwards and Laura Marsh and former England captain and ECB Managing Director of Cricket Partnerships, Mike Gatting, “Once again we have seen fantastic contributions and generosity over the NatWest CricketForce weekend,” he said. “It provides an excellent opportunity for clubs to engage with the local community and businesses as they assist them to renovate and prepare facilities ahead of the season.”
Dave Bojko, Operations Manager for Ringway, said, “The response from the volunteers was astounding. We supplied the rakes, shovels, wheelbarrows and materials; the volunteers bought the elbow-grease and Witham CC the tea. It was a great day for a worthwhile cause.”
Ringway’s contribution to Witham CC is the latest step in its programme of corporate responsibility to which it is extremely dedicated. With many projects up and down the country Ringway are passionate about developing both sustainable communities as well as business practices.
