Jones Homes has supplied Treeton Cricket Club's junior teams with new equipment and gear, including cricket bats, a portable scoreboard, pop up nets, and batting tees.

The cricket club, based in Washfield Lane, has junior teams for all abilities, with players aged from five to 18.

Eleanor Barber, the teams' co-ordinator, said: “This donation has allowed us to purchase further training equipment that we require to continually provide cricket in the local area to the growing number of people.

“This donation from Jones Homes means a lot to us, as it allows us to provide our junior team with new equipment that will see us through the new season next year.”

Jayne Swift, sales and marketing director for Jones Homes Yorkshire, said: “We are always keen to support local community groups wherever possible so when Treeton Cricket Club first approached us, we were more than happy to donate.

“The Club is a great asset for the village and provides a safe and welcoming environment for young people to practice their hobby and make new friends.”

Jones Homes is currently building 94 new homes at Beaumont Grange, off Wood Lane, including a mix of three, four, and five-bedroom houses.

Jayne added: “The club is just down the road from our Beaumont Grange development so we will be keeping an eye on their results and wishing them all the best for the rest of the season.”
