Sticky: Jim Donaldson BEM

Frenchay Cricket Club is proud to offer it’s congratulations to our very own Jim Donaldson who has been awarded The British Empire Medal (BEM) by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in the Birthday Honours List for “Services to Cricket in the Community of Bristol”. This honours his work at Frenchay CC and throughout the GCB area in many roles.

The club celebrated the award from Her Majesty with a photo with the 1st XI, a hand baked cake from Kerry Stell and a few words from the Chairman Woody.
