Gary Dewhurst, founder of recruitment firm gap Personnel, offered to make a £500 donation to the club to replace some of the lost equipment. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Carl Sargeant AM said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“As soon as the appeal was made, Gary got in touch with me to ask for contact details for the club and said he wanted to make a donation to help them. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“I believe he has now spoken with the chairman and £500 is on its way to the club, which is absolutely fantastic news. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Incidents like this, while unfortunate, really show that community spirit is still very much alive in Deeside. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

It’s great that companies, clubs and organisations are willing to step in and help each other out when things go wrong. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“I hope the donation helps to soften the blow Connah’s Quay Cricket Club has suffered and I would like to thank Gary and the team at gap Personnel for their generosity.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Anyone with information about the theft should call police on 101, quoting reference number RC14036414. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
