Leading South West taxi and private hire firm Veezu is sponsoring Bristol’s Stoke Bishop Cricket Club for their 2023 season.
The historic club, founded in 1889, has over 250 members across their junior section and senior team, providing developmental and competitive cricket for boys, girls, men and women across the local community.
Based at the 38-acre Coombe Dingle sports centre, the club has three pitches, three artificial nets and access to the pavilion serving food and drinks. The £1000 sponsorship received from Veezu will be used to buy pitch covers, stopping matches from being affected by poor weather.
Veezu South West is a regional brand of Veezu Group, who stepped in to donate to the local cause through their community support programme ‘Funded by Veezu’. The programme is a way in which local not-for-profit initiatives can receive grants and support.
Daniel Watts, Club Secretary at Stoke Bishop Cricket Club, said: “We’re so thankful to Veezu for their sponsorship this season. Their generous donation, alongside Bristol University’s support, will allow us to purchase pitch covers to stop the grounds being ruined in poor weather, thereby ensuring matches can go ahead to their best ability.
“We can’t wait to get out there this summer, and hope to see the team at Veezu cheering us on!”
Jack Price, Regional Director at Veezu South West, said: “We’re very happy to be able to sponsor Stoke Bishop Cricket Club this season, helping them get ever closer to their fundraising target for the year.
“Supporting our local community is of paramount importance to us at Veezu, and it’s great to see local causes benefitting from the Funded by Veezu programme.”
