Sussex Sharks vs Glamorgan in Aid of 

Sussex Cricket Foundation

Sussex Cricket is delighted to announce that the T20 Vitality Blast fixture on Friday 5th July between Sussex Sharks vs Glamorgan at The 1st Central County Ground will be played in aid of the Sussex Cricket Foundation, to help raise awareness and vital funds for the Club’s charitable arm.

The Sussex Cricket Foundation’s aim is to help actively change lives through the power of cricket, helping to inspire the next generation of cricketers, provide opportunities for people to play the game and make it accessible to all.

Before the game the Sussex Sharks Visually Impaired Team, who will be guests of honor, will take to the pitch to parade the BCEW Trophy which they won recently when they defeated Northamptonshire at The 1st Central County Ground. 

The Sussex Cricket Foundation team will also be running various activities in their new look FamZone before and during the game.

It has been yet another hugely impactful year for the Sussex Cricket Foundation, who continue to be held in high regard by the ECB and other partners. 

The Foundation continue to be classed as a ‘leading organisation’ in Disability Cricket, Women & Girls Cricket and Schools Cricket. The Foundation recently published their 2023 Impact Report, which can be read here and details all their work.  

Gary Wallis-Tayler, Community Cricket Director for the Sussex Cricket Foundation, said: “The Foundation continues to be in the best possible position and the game continues to grow across all ages, abilities and genders across the County. 

“Recreational Cricket in Sussex has never been in a stronger place. I am delighted that we are able to use one of our T20 fixtures as an opportunity to showcase the work of the Foundation which will help amplify our message to a wider audience.”
