In 2009 Sussex CCC formed a Charitable Trust to take full responsibility for all the club’s many historic treasures. Their Terms of Reference are simply to protect them, add to them and enable people to enjoy them, whilst encouraging as many young people as possible to explore the wonderful world of cricket.

This is a very worthwhile project and I would encourage all my customers to become members – the cost of which is only £20. Please look at my links page for the link.
