Wales Cricket Board
Jewson works in partnership with the England and Wales Cricket
Board (ECB) to promote cricket as a great sport to both watch and
play. This also includes being involved in the ECB's NatWest
CricketForce initiative, where participating cricket clubs can
access a Jewson Privilege Account Scheme.
By registering for an account, clubs are able to receive
additional funding from the ECB to make general ground
improvements. To get involved clubs make an initial payment of £50
into their Jewson account which will then have £350 added to it by
ECB at no further cost to the club. This money can then be spent at
Jewson branches on materials or tools nationwide at preferential
rates, to help clubs with their projects.
Working with the ECB also allows Jewson employees to get
involved in supporting local cricket club refurbishment plans.
Whether the task is painting or renovating, the Jewson employees
are always keen to lend a hand and offer their expertise.
Paul Edwards, Director of Sales at Jewson, said: "Our work with
the ECB allows us to offer local clubs exclusive promotions and
discounts on building materials. Cricket is a sport played by many
of our customers and their children so the partnership with the ECB
was a natural fit. Employees also enjoy the opportunity to join in
with various cricket club refurbishment initiatives across England
and Wales, helping to maintain grounds and leave a legacy of
improvements for club cricket."
Mike Gatting, ECB's Managing Director of Cricket Partnerships,
said: "We are delighted to have an on-going partnership with
Jewson. Their national branch network is ideal for ensuring that
cricket clubs up and down the country have access to the building
materials and tools that they need to make ongoing improvements and
repairs to their facilities, and the expertise offered by branch
staff is second to none for offering support around choosing the
right solutions for the right improvements."
