Cricket Ireland are inviting applications from organisations to become an Official Charity Pender. This is a significant area for many sports and a chance to support and highlight the fantastic work being carried out.

The closing date for applications is the 10th of April and it is anticipated that successful organisations will be selected before the 12th of April. The partnership will officially commence on the 1st of May, just in time for some of the key games this summer including Ireland -v- England at Malahide. The partnership agreement period is for one year, however this could be extended if the arrangement is deemed a significant benefit to all parties.

Cricket Ireland has addressed what it will distribute as part of the partnership. This includes player appearances, tickets for matches, programme, online and big screen content as well as social media and a presence at the big games. In return, they are looking for a commitment to pre-event planning and post-event feedback around the key fundraising opportunities and a real commitment to working as a partnership.
