Testimonials

The support which The Cricket Society Trust has given us over the years knows no bounds and we are forever grateful. Thousands of children with special needs have benefitted from the joy of visiting Arundel on very unique days in their lives, which has been due to the support of the Cricket Society Trust.”

John Barclay, Director, Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation

“We have been very fortunate to have had funding for our Teach Cricket Programme from the Cricket Society Trust for the last 5 years. This funding has allowed us to deliver the programme and importantly to us, their continued support has allowed us to plan for future years which have given us a continuity of delivery.  It is right to mention that since 2011 over 32 different schools have been visited and over 790 children have benefitted from our project.”

Darren Bicknell, Chief Executive, Belvoir Cricket and Countryside Trust
“May I on behalf of the Committee thank the Cricket Society Trust for the donation of £1,000.  The money will go towards establishing the League in Bedfordshire, where 30 more schools have signed up.”
