The influx of refugees into Germany over recent weeks has seen the DCB inundated with requests for assistance. A very large portion of the refugees come from cricket playing countries such as Pakistan and Afghanistan and are telling the authorities that one way for them to settle in is to give them the possibility to play cricket.
DCB General Manager Brian Mantle has received 25 requests for cricket equipment from German authorities since last week alone and the DCB does not have the resources to help all of these people.
Basically, there are two ways that you can help.
Firstly, if you have any old equipment, especially old cricket bats, please send them to Brian Mantle at the address below:
Helmut-Werner- Weg 13
The kit will be passed on to refugees.
Alternatively you can make a donation to the DCB. All donations will be used to help refugees and you will be issued with a certificate of donation (Spendenquittung).
Please contact Brian Mantle on firstname.lastname@example.org to find out the DCB’s bank details.
