Durham County Cricket Foundation Report 2010

The Foundation programmes are already under way for the second year of activity where the Foundation will aim to increase the number of people it works with in the local community to over 20,000.

The Foundation programmes themselves are divided into five pillars of activity, including Education, Grassroots Sport, Health, Club Development and Social Cohesion. These projects are not just undertaken in Durham, but right across the region, including Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Cleveland and Cumbria.

Durham County Cricket Foundation can add so much to these programmes and make them unique experiences for all involved by using the resources Durham CCC has to offer with an international sporting facility, the opportunity to meet professional cricketers and the unique match-day experience.

In its first full year of operation the Foundation interacted with almost 15,000 people, delivering over 1,100 hours of activity. Nearly 150 schools and over 50 cricket clubs have benefited from the valuable work Foundation staff do in the community. Durham CCC players have also played their part in the Foundations work, as they have collectively made 112 visits to programme participants in the last year.

The Foundation would also like to take the opportunity to thank main community partner The Esh Charitable Trust and community partners Tesco and Northumbrian Water who without their valuable support we could not make the impact on all those people in the community.
