Welcome to the New(ish) GCC Website and the 2018 Grantchester Charity Runs

We have done a bit of spring cleaning behind the scenes and freshened up the look of GCC’s website*. All previous content is still here but let me know if you spot anything that isn’t working via the Comments box below.

Our sister website www.grantchester10k.org has also been freshened up with new content (including registration details) for the 2018 Grantchester Charity Runs. They take place on Sunday, September 30th. It is an important event for the Cricket Club and we are always in need of volunteers both on the day and in the lead-up to the big day. Please put the date in your diary and plan to help (which you can do now by encouraging friends, family, colleagues, teammates, etc to register).

The 2018 Grantchester Runs welcome back ACT, Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust as a designated charity and Maggie’s Centre Cambridge as a new designated charity for 2018. Both charities are integral to the patient experience and patient support at Addenbrooke’s in Cambridge.

Maggie’s Centre Cambridge

Maggie’s is a place where people affected by cancer, their family and friends can access cancer support for free. This includes one to one support with cancer support specialist or clinical psychologist, various support groups such as Brain Tumour Support Group or Men’s group, access courses such as Fatigue/Stress Management and more.
ACT, Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust

2018 is the 50th Anniversary of the first liver transplant in Europe which took place at Addenbrooke’s***. The Liver Perfusion Machine is a revolutionary device for assessing, storing donated livers for extended periods of time. 2018 Grantchester Charity Runs are supporting ACT ‘s campaign to bring such a machine to Addenbrooke’s where it would be the first in UK.

***Club Captain Dan Farman’s father was the anaesthetist at this first liver transplant

*The GCC website is now actually www.grantchestercricket.club but I should add that www.grantchestercricket.com will still get you here
