Volunteers' Week 2022: 1-7 June
The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation (YCF) – the official charity and community arm of Yorkshire County Cricket Club – is encouraging members of the community to sign up as a volunteer in 2022.
The call to action is to highlight Volunteers’ Week 2022 which is running from 1-7 June this year.
It is an annual celebration of the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering.
To help celebrate the campaign we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our wonderful volunteers for their fantastic work – this includes our award-winning Yorkies Welcome Team!
The Yorkies work tirelessly at Yorkshire County Cricket Club, giving up their time to help provide a warm and welcoming experience to all spectators at Headingley Cricket Ground and other associated out grounds across the county.
All the volunteers have made an incredibly positive impact – Thomas Mason, Volunteer Manager, Yorkshire Cricket Foundation
We are also supporting the campaign by encouraging people to sign up to become a volunteer with the Foundation!
Volunteering with the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation
At YCF, we have many opportunities for you to get involved. Our main opportunities for volunteering include:
If you are a university student looking to complete a professional placement as part of your course, let us know what you are interested in and we will work with you to create a placement that guarantees real life experience of what it is like to work in the sector.
For much of our work, we rely on the generosity of volunteers to ensure our projects run smoothly. In most cases, we will advertise on our website and social media when these opportunities arise, though we would recommend you getting in touch if you see a project that interests you just in case!
Each year we deliver several events across the county where a few extra pairs of hands are welcome! Duties may include anything from helping with registration, operational, assisting with marketing or activity management.
The Yorkies are our match day support team who help out at all YCCC home fixtures across the season. Yorkies help with a variety of roles, including helping on ticket collections, assisting on public transport, welcoming people into the grounds and distributing freebies! Recruitment for the Yorkies team takes place in February.

The call to action is just one of the initiatives we are showcasing this week to highlight and support Volunteers’ Week 2022.
