Yorkshire Cricket Foundation launch #YCF10for10
The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation, official charity and community arm of Yorkshire County Cricket Club, are celebrating their 10-year anniversary this year by running a series of 10 fun and exciting fundraising challenges, with their official fundraising partner, Involve Adventures.
The purpose of #YCF10for10 is to raise funds for, as well as awareness of, the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation. They are inviting businesses and individuals to take part in the challenges that will take place throughout 2019. From hiking, dragon boat racing and barge pulling, right through to walking on the wing of a biplane, you do not want to miss your opportunity to get involved in some team bonding and set yourself a personal challenge this year.
Commenting on why the Foundation will be hosting #YCF10for10, Will Saville, Head of the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation, said:
“As a charity we are really proud to be able to use the power of cricket and the White Rose to help benefit the communities of Yorkshire. Our vision is to create ‘Community Without Boundaries’. We are not core funded and each year we have to raise all of our funds to deliver our projects, events and initiatives. Geoff has been fantastic in putting together so many great fundraising challenges for people to get involved with and we are really grateful for his efforts.”
Geoff Major, fundraising guru and CEO of Involve Adventures added:
“Cricket was an important part of my life for 20 years and I have been completing challenges for 10 years; so the opportunity to work with the YCF is a perfect match”
Ambassador of the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation, Joe Root, commented:
“It’s an exciting year for the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation. They do some fantastic work in Yorkshire’s communities and I’m hopeful that we can get lots of businesses and individuals on board with their 10 fundraising challenges”
Lauren Winfield, YCF Ambassador, added:
“It’s important that we harness the power of cricket and use it to do good in Yorkshire. The Foundation have some great projects, working in Health & Wellbeing, Education, Participation and Heritage and I hope that we manage to raise funds as well as awareness of their work”
