Tozers specialist charities team help Somerset Cricket Foundation achieve charity status

Tozers’ specialist charities team have recently helped the Somerset Cricket Board, the governing body for recreational cricket in the County, to achieve charity status to become Somerset Cricket Foundation.

Originally established in the mid 1990’s, Somerset Cricket Foundation aims to help facilitate the playing and development of recreational cricket across Somerset, working closely with Somerset CCC. The Foundation’s mission is to engage, inspire and develop cricket clubs and communities across the County to improve people’s lives through cricket.

James Evans, Head of our Charities and Social Enterprise team said; “We were delighted to help Somerset Cricket Foundation achieve charity status, and as a keen – if not very talented- cricketer myself this was a matter close to my heart! This is really positive news for recreational cricket across the County, and we are sure charity status will be a significant help to the Foundation in achieving its strategic objectives. This also reflects an increasing trend we are seeing where non-charitable organisations in various sectors have been keen to explore with us the potential benefits of charity status for some or all of their operations.”


Achieving charity status allows Somerset Cricket Foundation the opportunity to cement its vision, mission and aims in the county and communities, as well as opening the doors to new project areas such as developing sporting memory programmes to tackle dementia, depression and loneliness, taking cricket to young people living in areas with high levels of poverty, and creating a Mental Health Ambassadors programme for local cricket clubs.

Andy Curtis, Chair of the Foundation said: “We were glad to have Tozers’ excellent legal support and specialist charities expertise to help us navigate the complex process of achieving charity status successfully”
