A Northumberland cricket club is facing repairs of tens of thousands of pounds after its facilities were virtually destroyed in the December floods.
Corbridge Cricket Club found itself under four or five feet of water from the River Tyne, when the southern part of the village was engulfed during Storm Desmond.
Officials say they are delighted by the response from the public and the world of cricket, with offers of help coming in from as far away as Australia and New Zealand.
Despite the huge task ahead, the club says it is determined to be ready for the new season.
