Tea 4 Two - Guerilla Cricket

Tea 4 Two

Dear Clubs,  

Following the successful return of recreational cricket this weekend, Sussex Cricket and the Sussex Cricket Foundation are delighted to launch the ‘Tea 4 Two’ initiative, which encourages local cricket clubs to use their facilities as a hub for donations of food.  

In Sussex alone, the demand on food banks tripled over the past four months, with food poverty increasing significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic. The launch of the ‘Tea 4 Two’ initiative looks to combat this issue across the county of Sussex.  

How can your club get involved? 

  1. We are looking for clubs across Sussex to act as hubs for donations of food.  

  1. Partner with a local foodbank scheme near you (see attached list of foodbanks) 

  1. Download, Print and Install your collection point poster at your club (see attached) 

  1. Urge your players and members to donate and drop off food (see attached list of suggested items) 

  1. Nominate a volunteer to collect donated food and deliver to your chosen foodbank 

The initiative is designed to dovetail and amplify the ECB’s national ‘Tea-A-Thon', which will see the cricketing community across England and Wales raise awareness of food poverty in the UK during the second #RaiseTheBat Test between England and West Indies.  

For further information on how to get involved please review the attached letter from Jon Filby, Chair of the Sussex Cricket Foundation - jon.filby@sussexcricket.co.uk
