Joanne Swinbank - Assistant Project Officer

My role within the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation mainly focuses on match day activations; such as forming the guard of honour, assisting the mascot, organising regular RLODC Kwik Cricket tournaments and coordinating ‘The Yorkies’ volunteer programme. I also lead on Junior Vikings Day and Junior Diamonds Day, annual events inspiring the youngest members of YCCC. A key event I run is Education Day which welcomes over 600 children to Headingley with a variety of different workshops and activities, often themed around the One Day International Team playing at Headingley that year. Alongside this part-time role, I am also a third year student at Leeds Beckett University studying Events Management.
