African Adventures - Zanzibar October 2022

Sussex Cricket Foundation has teamed up with African Adventures to offer its supporters a unique opportunity to volunteer in Zanzibar – and you’re invited to join!

African Adventures is a unique volunteer travel company, dedicated to improving lives in the UK and Africa through volunteering. They work with three schools near Stone Town in Zanzibar which help improve the lives of the thousands of children who attend them.

Our 10-night trip takes place on 22nd October 2022, where you’ll help with teaching, sports coaching or building and renovations at one of our partner schools. Away from volunteering, you’ll explore everything Zanzibar has to offer on our Taste of Zanzibar Weekend.

For further information, we're holding a virtual info evening: Monday 15th November at 7:30 pm

Katy's Cycling the Via de la Plata - a Camino of 1,000km...

UPDATE 17th June 2019

Katy Cooper Challenge

Dear all

Greetings from sunny Salamanca! As you may have gathered, I am a trustee of Sussex Cricket Foundation and I am on a 1,000km, solo, sponsored bike ride from Seville in southern Spain to Santiago de Compostela in the north-west. As I’m now just over half way, I thought I’d send an update.

I’ve been cycling for nine days, with eight more to come. I’m doing about 60km a day, on a mountain bike. Most of the route is either on paths or on the sort of ‘road’ on which, were you driving a car, you would definitely want to take out extra insurance for damage to the underneath of the vehicle. It’s a wonderful part of the world for panoramic landscapes, birdlife and, particularly, history. The route I’m taking - known as the ‘Via de la Plata’ - was originally a Roman road, and then in the Middle Ages became one of the ‘Camino’ (pilgrimage) routes to Santiago de Compostela. There are some amazing churches and walled towns (I’ve already been to two places that were settings for ‘Game of Thrones’), and I’ve been very, very lucky with the weather so far...but north-west Spain is one of the wettest parts of Europe, so this could change... I’m also fortunate to have timed this to coincide with the Cricket World Cup, which gives me something else with which to fill my days once I’ve arrived at my destination (when there’s play, that is!).

The photo is of me outside Salamanca Cathedral - in my SCF T-shirt, of course! - and if you want to read about my daily progress, I’m blogging each evening at

It’s a long way to be travelling on my own - and I really appreciate all the support I’ve been shown so far. Thank you so very much to those of you who have already so generously sponsored me. My JustGiving page (which also allows you to add 25% extra through Gift Aid) is at - and I would be hugely grateful for anything you can give. The Sussex Cricket Foundation does amazing things, and with your support we can do even more!

Thank you so much again - and I’ll send another update when I make it to Santiago!

All the best
