The Trust



The Sidmouth Cricket Player Development Charitable Trust was formed in November 2015 off the back of a very kind donation from an existing Club member. The Trust is run by 3 Trustees on a voluntary basis.


The objectives of the Trust are:

  • To promote participation in the game of Cricket.

  • To assist players in maximising their enjoyment of the game through encouraging and assisting them to develop their skills to a level appropriate for each individual.


The beneficiaries of any funding must be aged 13-25 years old and should be, or become, active members of Sidmouth Cricket Club – a community amateur sports club.


The Sidmouth Cricket Player Development Charitable Trust is a not-for-profit organisation recognised as charitable by HMRC for tax purposes.
