PS Volunteering need not be a regular commitment (unless you want it to be!) and there are opportunities through the year.

About our club

Friends of Grace Road is the supporters group for Leicestershire County Cricket Club (LCCC) – donating all profits from various fund-raising activities to the Club, so as to enhance Leicestershire cricket.
Created in 1975, the 'Friends' is an intrinsic part of the the Club and is much-loved by LCCC members and visitors alike for serving delicious home-made cakes and hot drinks on match days from a café bar in the iconic 'Meet' building at the County Ground, Grace Road, Leicester.
The Friends also runs 50/50 raffles on certain home games and hosts regular lunches and other events throughout the winter months. All these activities rely on a band of volunteers – and we always need more 'Friends'!
