The Bermuda Police Service confirmed that an investigation took place into the crime, but are otherwise flummoxed. Asked if the lack of funds has had any impact on the club, Mr Minors added: We are able to operate, but not in the capacity we would like to. Carlton Smith, president of Cleveland County, said: If we get the money and everything is straight then everybody is happy.
Mr Bradshaw spoke of the importance of transparency and good governance within the third sector as well as ensuring sustainability. The four member clubs of the Eastern Counties Cricket Association (ECCA) are still waiting for close to ,000 that has been owed to them since November.
It is understood that the delay is because of money having been stolen from a car near St Davids Primary School.
The missing amount is ,700, which represented takings from the spot sales for the three-match series played in St Davids last year.
As a result, St Davids County Cricket Club, Cleveland County Cricket Club, Baileys Bay Cricket Club and Flatts Victoria Recreation Club are still awaiting funding that otherwise would have been distributed by the ECCA by now.
Representatives from the clubs told The Royal Gazette that they had received little to no communication from the association about when or whether they would receive the money.
However, Steven Douglas, the Eastern Counties president, has said that good news is on the way.By coming together, there is, perhaps, an immediate pain in business where there are some jobs lost but eventually it ends up being a stronger company that can achieve and employ more and contribute more.I would encourage those in the third sector to think about areas where it makes sense to consolidate or merge. Charities have been urged to consider the short-term pain of consolidation or mergers as they battle for survival in Bermudas harsh economy.Caroline Foulger, chairwoman of Bermuda Business Development Agency, encouraged the third sector to follow the example of the international business community by undergoing tough measures that could lead to a brighter long-term future.Ms Foulger told the audience: We have lots of third sector organisations in Bermuda.
