Local charities in Derbyshire can now apply to be one of Cricket Derbyshire’s Official Charity Partners for 2016.
Selected partners will work closely with Derbyshire County Cricket Club, Derbyshire Cricket Board and the Cricket Derbyshire Foundation throughout the year to support the charity’s fundraising efforts and to increase recognition for its cause.
Derbyshire will also promote all three charities through their channels of communication, as well as donating signed cricket memorabilia for fundraising events.
The selection process will focus on association with Derbyshire, project delivery within the county, previous partnership work and the opportunity for Cricket Derbyshire to make a real difference.
Commercial directorRyan Duckett said: “We have worked with chosen charities for the past three years and we hope to develop similar successful partnerships in 2016.
“This is a great opportunity for us to use our profile and network to enhance the incredible charity work that is already being done across the county.
“As well as providing exclusive support for our three charity partners - in terms of player appearances, hosting events and fundraising activities - we have also donated almost £20,000 worth of tickets and merchandise to support good causes across the county.”
Any registered charity interested in becoming an official partner should email with an expression of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org or write to the Official Charity Partner panel at:
The 3aaa County Ground
The deadline for applications is Friday, February 19.
Charities can be local or national but must be active in the county of Derbyshire. Applications should aim to demonstrate a relevance to cricket in Derbyshire and a positive impact on the local community.
