About the Festival:
The Cornwall Youth Cricket Festival is run every August by St Gluvias CC in August and is one of the biggest youth cricket festivals in the UK. It is currently in its 33rd year and attracts youth teams from all over Cornwall and much further afield.
What did STAND FOR do for the festival?
Due to the increased size of the festival and its continued growth each year, the festival needed a way to ensure they were able to deal with the increased schedule. Stand For provided a floodlight solution, which gave the festival organisers the opportunity to schedule games all through the day and night, thus giving the young boys and girls participating, the experience of playing under floodlights, as they have seen their heroes do on TV.
What was the outcome?
Stand For has now provided the floodlight sponsorship for the Cornwall Youth Cricket Festival for the last three years. Rich Bannister, a committee member was quoted as saying: “Every year Stand For has been continually welcoming to our sponsor requests, which has proved hugely beneficial to the organisers and participants. We hope that they continue to support us for many years to come!”
Describe what STAND FOR means to you?
Without Stand For’s sponsorship, we wouldn’t be able to provide floodlit cricket, which is something all the youngsters want to do having seen it on the TV. It gives an added excitement to the games for both players and spectators, allows us to play longer in the evenings and supports our objective of improving cricket participation and quality.
