Welcome to the Friends of Grace Road Website
Friends of Grace Road is the Leicestershire County Cricket Club supporters' group – a team of volunteers who bake and sell cakes on match days to raise money to funds for capital projects at Grace Road.
You'll find us on the first floor of 'The Meet' - the iconic barrel-roofed building in the corner at Fischer County Ground.
Like to be Involved?
The Friends of Grace Road is always pleased to hear from anyone who'd like to help – whether serving at the café, baking cakes, selling raffle tickets or sorting books.
Please contact us here:
Modestly we say that we are famous for our homemade cakes.

For games in September, the hours will be 2.00 until 4.00pm
Big Winners at T20 Blast
Five lucky folk at home T20 games walked away with cash in their pockets – when they won the Friends of Grace Road 50/ 50 raffle.
Total prize money of over £2,500 was given away – making this the most successful raffle season to date!
The Friends of Grace Road would like to thank everyone who bought a ticket and all the the tickets sellers who all did a great job in raising £2,500.
Some of the winners...
Your name doesn't have to be 'Baker' but if you can bake a cake please help us.
You will be rewarded in a few ways. Your costs will be covered and you'll be invited to a party.
Books For Sale & Wanted
The Friends of Grace Road is home to pre-loved books that are looking for a good home. Why not pop upstairs of 'The Meet' to peruse sporting books from all eras.
There is an honesty box - all donations welcome.
The Friends have revised their services and range of activities and this can only be maintained if a sufficient number of new helpers volunteer their services to bake cakes, serve refreshments in the Café, or sell raffle tickets at RL50 and T20 games.
Without more help, the FoGR will no longer exist.
