Cricket Development Trust Scotland

Supporting Cricket in Scotland from the Grass Roots Up

Derek Pringle Evening Success

On 10th November 2023 we hosted our annual fund raising dinner at the Royal Scots Club in Edinburgh.

Around 100 cricket lovers from across the country enjoyed an entertaining evening with former England Internationalist, now turned writer Derek Pringle and our MC Willie Hunter, the Edinburgh Lawyer. 

Trustee Alasdair Robinson welcomed the company before going on to highlight the work of the Trust and showcasing via a video some of the projects the Trust had supported in the previous twelve months.

A presentation was then made to Terry Racionzer, founder and former Chair of The Cricket Development Trust Scotland in recognition of his outstanding contribution and continuing support of the game. 

A raffle, reverse auction (for 6 signed Derek Pringle books) and the main auction were held before Derek and Willie took part in a most entertaining question and answer session where Derek recalled several interesting stories and events.

We would like to sincerely thank everyone who attended and who gave so generously on the night. Many thanks also to those who donated raffle and auction prizes. Finally, thanks to the Royal Scots Club for a lovely meal and for being first class hosts.

An excellent four-figure sum was raised which will enable the Trust to continue it’s work in developing and growing the game of cricket in Scotland.
