Helping Young People to Participate in Cricket
The Cricket Society Trust is a registered charity helping to deliver opportunities for young people to learn about and play cricket. We fulfil our charitable objectives predominantly by providing funding to charities and other institutions whose programmes are aligned with our objective.
Currently, alongside other programs, our funding helps to support:
- The MCC Foundation’s Cricket Hub for State School Girls in Essex, Birmingham, Guildford - transforming lives through cricket. They deliver projects across the UK and around the world that use cricket to empower young people to reach their full potential, to unite and inspire communities, and to promote physical and mental well-being.
- The Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation programmes - that enable disadvantaged young people to participate in sports, education and recreation, using the power of cricket, outdoor recreation and their unique historic setting to create magical experiences to give young people the tools and confidence they need to learn, grow and succeed.
- The Belvoir Cricket and Countryside Trust - who aim to reach and influence over 3,300 young people including 1,500 girls, special needs, low socio-economic, and ethnic minority children through their programs.
- The Fred Trueman Schools Cricket League - through Cricket East is a collaborative organisation responsible for delivering the England & Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB) participation & growth activities and supporting recreational cricket as well as the performance pathway programmes across Bedfordshire and Huntingdonshire, creating links between schools, clubs, leagues and the community.
