Gloucester Cricket Club seek partners for new charitable programme
Gloucestershire Cricket has launched its first ever charity partner programme with a view to finding three different charitable organisations to work with in its 150th anniversary year.
The charity partnership programme seeks to embed the Club further into its local communities, and as such hopes to appeal to a range of charities and groups in the application process.
Three different partnerships are on offer for charitable organisations: one based within a one-mile radius of the Club, one Bristol-centred and one covering the whole of the county of Gloucestershire.
Each charity partner will be entitled to an attractive package including numerous benefits aimed at increasing the charity’s profile and giving opportunities to generate revenue and support those who work and volunteer for the charity. No prerequisites or previous links to the Club are necessary to apply; likewise, there will be no financial implications for the chosen charities.
Gloucestershire Cricket have recently seen tremendous success partnering with Bristol based charity Grief Encounter. The charity, which supports bereaved children and their families, saw thousands donated through various raffles, bucket collections and shirt sales while spreading awareness at the ground during an August T20 fixture.
