Here at Northamptonshire County Cricket Club, we pride ourselves on being a club at the heart of the community. We work closely with a number of charities such as the Cube Disability throughout the year to raise as much money as possible so that they are able to carry out their vital work that helps so many of us in the local community. Charities can apply to have a bucket shake at one of our T20 matches, raising an average of £500 per match, or 50 Over matches.
*Please note, applications for the 2019 season will open in December. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Wherever possible we support charity requests with tickets, we also have limited memorabilia which is put forward for charity auctions. Please contact email@example.com for more details.
CHARITY OF THE YEAR
We are delighted to be working with PWSA for the 2018 season.
We have been working with PWSA to raise awareness of Prader-Willi Syndrome. (PWS) is a rare, complex genetic disorder that affects both males and females throughout their lives.
· An overwhelming, compulsive, insatiable appetite
· Poor muscle tone
· Mild to moderate learning difficulties
· Incomplete sexual development
· Emotional instability and social immaturity
Northamptonshire right arm seamer, Richard Gleeson, became an ambassador of the charity last year.
“Imagine only being able to eat two thirds of the calories that everyone else does and not being able to burn off those calories because of poor muscle tone” he told us, “that’s what it’s like living with Prader-Willi syndrome, and that’s why I am supporting PWSA UK”.
Our players regularly participate in school visits in and around the local area. These provide children with the opportunity to interact with the players, gaining an insight into the life of a professional sportsman. We provide coaching sessions, player appearances and Q&A sessions for all age groups.
If you would like the opportunity to participate in our Schools Programme, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
*Please note, players availability for these visits will become very limited as of April 1st once the cricket season is underway
Aside from the cricket, the County Ground hosts classes independent to the club. Our personal trainer, Aaron Wiles is also independent to the club and uses our gym to train his personal clients.
