Yorkshire County Cricket Club Charitable Youth Trust
WHAT THE CHARITABLE YOUTH TRUST (CYT) DOES
The CYT is a charity which aims to enable more young people to play cricket and other sports in Yorkshire.
Increasingly, we have been focused upon programmes that provide vital equipment, coaching and facilities which enable more girls and boys to experience the joy of cricket and to lead healthier lives.
We work through partnerships and finance the programmes which benefit children.
We have announced a new two-year programme extension for “Enjoy Cricket” and “Pop-Up Cricket”, programmes run by The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation which will engage as many youngsters as possible in cricketing activity and give access to communities where there are limited opportunities available. From this initial engagement, children will be signposted to more established cricket clubs who will encourage a life-long love of cricket. (link to announcement)
In the last 5 years the CYT has been pleased to support individual clubs, schools and cricket development groups with a variety of projects, including contributions to:
• Provide improved practice facilities
• Provide coaching equipment
• Set up/expand out of season coaching programmes
FUNDS AND FUNDRAISING
The CYT manages a fund originally set up as the Sir Leonard Hutton Foundation but is pleased to receive donations from individuals or charitable fundraising events. Legacies and bequests are also very welcome in memory of Yorkshire cricket lovers.
Would a grant help you engage more children in cricket?
If you are a club, school or association that has a project that will help CYT achieve its aims and give the opportunity to enjoy cricket to young people in your area, we would be pleased to hear from you. Our Grant Application form can be downloaded here
