We are delighted to have 3 key headline partners for our community engagement work: Santander corporate banking, Southern and Southern Water.

Our three-year partnership with Santander, agreed in June 2012 sees Santander as the lead partner in the delivery of cricket in the community of Sussex.

The partnership will enable the Sussex Cricket Board to reach out deeper into our communities with a particular emphasis on women and girls cricket, along with disability and social inclusion projects. The project will also look at encouraging more adults to take up varied formats of the game, as well as a number of new and exciting community based initiatives..

Tim Shutt Head of Cricket Development and Cricket in the Community said, "We are delighted to have Santander Corporate Banking on board as our lead Community Partner for the next three years. Their investment into our community activity will make an enormous difference to a huge number of groups of new and existing cricketers of all ages, backgrounds and abilities."

Gwyn Price, Regional Director, South East Corporate Business Centre, said: "We are delighted to be supporting the Club in Sussex as their Community Partner. Our three year investment demonstrates our commitment to support the club's ambitions in enhancing this great sport across the Youth, Disabled and Women's game as well as in the less advantaged areas of the County in the hope it will add real value to our community."

Southern Railway has been a community sponsor for five years supporting programmes such as Street20 Cricket, Cricket Club Roadshows and 'A Day in the Life'.

The Southern Water Project, is part of a partnership with Sussex Cricket and is now in its 5th year. Through the partnership they are able to deliver key environmental messages into Sussex based primary schools through assemblies delivered by Sussex cricket coaches.

Messaging has included the importance of hydration, water saving and efficiency and more recently the importance of what you can, and can't, flush down a toilet.

Talking about the Southern Water Ashes competition run throughout Sussex schools Andy Shaddick, Southern Water's Public Affairs Manager said, "We are delighted to again be running the Southern Water Ashes with local schools. As part of our Sporting Chance programme this partnership with Sussex Cricket teaches children the importance of staying hydrated during exercise while being put through their paces by the professional coaches..

Tim Shutt, Head of Cricket Development and Cricket in the Community at Sussex said: "Given that we are in the prime cricket playing season, and coaching in over 150 schools, we have an opportunity to convey important messages to many young people. Our partnership with Southern Water has enabled schools from all over Sussex to understand key environmental messages.
