Here at Northamptonshire County Cricket Club, we pride ourselves on being a club at the heart of the community. We work closely with a number of charities such as the Cube Disability throughout the year to raise as much money as possible so that they are able to carry out their vital work that helps so many of us in the local community. Charities can apply to have a bucket at one of our T20 matches which raise an average of £500 per match. Wherever possible we support charity requests with tickets, we also have limited memorabilia which is put forward for charity auctions.
CHARITY OF THE YEAR
Northamptonshire County Cricket Club is delighted to announce that Guide Dogs will be the clubs chosen charity for 2016. Founded in 1934, Guide Dogs provides help to thousands of blind and partially sighted people across the UK through the provision of guide dogs, mobility and other rehabilitation services. They also campaign for the rights of those with visual impairments and invest in eye disease research. Northants Cricket will host various events throughout 2016 to help raise money for the charity, so make sure to follow the Northants Cricket website for news on these events.
This year community day will be held on the 24th July. Entry to the ground is free, though you will need to book tickets in advance to be guaranteed entry. An array of children’s entertainment will be on offer throughout the day with a demonstration by the Guide Dogs to be held during the lunch break. It is sure to be an exciting day out for all the family so make sure you get involved!
Our players regularly participate in school visits in and around the local area during which they talk to the children about the life of a professional sportsman.
Aside from the cricket, the County Ground hosts classes independent to the club such as Pilates and a Baby Massage Group. Our personal trainer, Aaron Wiles is also independent to the club and uses our gym to train his personal clients
