Join The 500 Club
The 500 Club is run by The Friends of Darwen Cricket Club, our charitable arm that supports all investment in facilities and equipment at Birch Hall. Over the past 5 years, ‘The Friends’ have enabled us to install the new three-lane practice facility, refurbish the clubhouse and purchase vital maintenance equipment for the ground. Funds are generated through the 500 Club lottery which is drawn every month, with a minimum of seven cash prizes on offer.
To join, you will need to setup a standing order online or complete a mandate and return to Mark Emery at 617 Bolton Road, Blackburn, BB2 4JT. Once your bank has set up the payment, you will be advised your membership number accordingly.
