1876 Club

The 1876 Club was established by members of the Ashburton Willows Cricket Club in 2010 with the mission to support the long term sustainability and success of the AWCC.



The objectives of the 1876 Club are to build the financial resources of the AWCC, provide financial support for projects that will support the development of the AWCC and to encourage past players and supporters to remain involved with the club in a social capacity.

1876 Club members also assist the club committee by providing support and assistance for specific projects if requested.

Over the past five years, the 1876 Club has contributed over $10,000 to equipment and junior development programs for the AWCC.

Each year the 1876 Club holds several social functions, including at least one fundraising event or initiative.

Membership of the 1876 Club is $500 per annum, with an additional $500 joining fee applicable in the first year of membership.
