Once a Bear…Always a Bear
We recognise the special affinity that many of our Members and supporters have with Warwickshire County Cricket Club and Edgbaston, having spent countless hours supporting the club home and away.
As the team and the stadium have evolved over the years, the dedication and reverence for the Bear & Ragged Staff has never wavered.
Such dedication can become timeless by leaving a legacy gift to the Club’s official charity the Edgbaston Foundation.
A gift of this nature can help support the Edgbaston Foundation’s aim to use cricket as a means to make a difference in the community and improve social outcomes for those who are disadvantaged.
If desired it can also be dedicated to support recreational cricket in the region, or to support young cricketers coming through the Player Pathway and Club Academy.
There are two ways in which legacy gifts can be donated to the Edgbaston Foundation.
Gifts in Will
A gift in will can be a wonderful way to recognise the close affinity with Warwickshire CCC and Edgbaston once loved ones and friends have been cared for.
Gifts in Memory
A gift in memory can be donated by family and friends to recognise the life of a dear loved one and ensure that a difference is made in the community in honour of that special individual.
Recognition of Gifts in Will/ Gifts in Memory
To recognise individuals who have left a gift in a will, or loved ones who have left a gift in memory to the Edgbaston Foundation, a stone in The Bear and Ragged Staff Wall will be gifted (for gifts of £250 or over). Each stone provides a lasting memory of that special individual here at Edgbaston, a tangible connection to a place they held so dearly and where many cherished memories lie.
