Kent Cricket’s Director of Partnerships, Andy Griffiths, said: “KSS provides a vital service that directly affects thousands of people across our county and the surrounding area.

“As they are an independent charity that relies on 88% of their annual income coming from donations and fundraising, we’re proud to be supporting such a worthwhile local charity as we head into another exciting Summer of cricket in 2021.”

“This is a great opportunity to collaborate with everyone involved with Kent Cricket, from their employees to Members, to raise awareness of our organisation in the local communities in which we serve and much needed funds.

“It costs £15 million a year to run our life-saving service and we are so grateful to all of our incredible supporters.  We look forward to working closely with Kent Cricket throughout 2021.”
