A Brigg hockey fun day for all the family is to be held on Sunday, April 20 at the Winterton artificial pitch, Newport Drive (2pm).
There will be a fun tournament for six-a-side mixed teams, costing £4 per person.
Teams should be a mixture of adults, children and non-regular players.
Club spokesman Peter Spittlehouse said: "We need to raise £1,500 for Brigg Colts to enable the club to continue training youngsters, entering tournaments, buying equipment and developing youth hockey in the area.
"In the past we have had to raise subscriptions every year and we hope to avoid doing this again next season."
The hockey will be followed by BBQ and rounders, and there will be games, stalls, a raffle and other attractions.

The reason the event is having to be staged at Winterton, is Brigg still remains without a floodlit, 'Astroturf' pitch of its own, despite a campaign stretching back more than 20 years. Brigg, as a town, has more hockey teams than anywhere else in the area, yet successive councils - Humberside, Glanford and North Lincolnshire - have failed to make the project happen.
