An invite to the OSCAs

02/10/2006 Return to news archive

Community RePaint was pleased to accept an invitation to attend the OSCAs (Outstanding Service to Cricket Awards) recently at Lords Cricket Ground. This followed good relations built up with the English Cricket Board, who organise the annual NatWest Cricket Force event (the biggest volunteering event in the UK). Cricket Force involves hundreds of amateur cricket clubs "doing up" their grounds and clubhouses" over one weekend (the next one will be 31 March–2 April 2007), many of which get their paint from local Community RePaint schemes.

Four hundred Community RePaint business cards were distributed in delegate packs at the event, hosted to thank volunteers working with amateur cricket clubs. This will generate a lot of requests for paint to schemes across England and Wales next year, so be prepared!
