Even in the off-season, Trevallyn Cricket Club is still putting big totals on the board.
The Tasmanian Cricket League's second-oldest existing club has donated $500 to the Winter Relief Appeal ahead of its 92nd season.
Unable to employ its usual fundraising vehicle - a darts competition at the club - Trevallyn hit the bullseye with pick-a-number cards.
Offering winners IGA and petrol vouchers worth several hundred dollars, the card fundraiser helped the club raise much-needed finances for season 2020-21 before going in to bat for the wider community.

"We started fundraising there and we put it to the committee if we could raise money for Winter Relief, because obviously if we're doing it tough there's other people doing it tougher than us and they jumped on board," Trevallyn committee member Charmaine Whyman said.
"We're lucky because we're quite a large club with four men's teams, a female team and two junior teams.
"We try to tap into outside people like family members and supporters for this one and everyone really jumped on board for [the Winter Relief Appeal]."
Trevallyn has recently started up training ahead of the new season.
The club has a new president on board for 2020, with former captain-coach Glen Gleeson taking over the reins following a four-years stint from Steve Cocker.
"He's new into it and hoping to brighten things up leading at the helm," Whyman said.
Now in its 62nd year, The Examiner's Winter Relief Appeal has already raised more than $110,000 - $40,000 more than its original target - with one month to go.
Funds raised in the appeal are shared between Northern Tasmanian charities City Mission, the Salvation Army, the Launceston Benevolent Society and St Vincent de Paul.
You can donate to the appeal online via electronic funds transfer: BSB 035822, account 011443537.
