Giving a Sporting Chance

Published by - 20/06/2013

As part of our social enterprise ethos, Arch Communications is funding an exciting charity project to bring the spirit of the Olympics to this summer’s Ashes cricket clash between England and Australia.

We’re fully sponsoring a pioneering programme by Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club to provide Olympics-style Games Makers for the opening Test at Trent Bridge.

A support team has been recruited and trained to ensure a great experience for those lucky enough to have tickets for the match. The 80 volunteering opportunities will provide community involvement in a variety of roles – including entertainment, ticketing, media, catering and retail.

The team had a major rehearsal with a near capacity crowd at the recent England v New Zealand One Day International. It was their first opportunity to try out the special uniforms which we have funded as part of the sponsorship – complete with our company logo.

Here you can see volunteers Bill Anderson (left) and Andy Marchant with Arch communications’ Director Matt Youdale. Matt said: “As a social enterprise, we like to invest in schemes which deliver a clear community benefit. This really fits the bill.”

If you’re attending the Ashes Test in July, look out for the volunteers. They’re the ones with Arch Communications on their sleeve!
