Medequip Partners With Somerset Cricket Foundation

Medequip Partners With Somerset Cricket Foundation

Putting the focus on co-production and community engagement, community equipment specialists Medequip have further expanded their portfolio of partnerships with local organisations, partnering with the Somerset Cricket Foundation.

Medequip’s objective is to use sponsorship agreements to support organisations with established performance records in improving the lives of people living in the areas where the company operates equipment services contracts.

Medequip is commissioned to provide an integrated community equipment service in Somerset, with operations for the area coming out of a depot in the County Town of Taunton since August 2022. Prior to this, Medequip's Emerson's Green depot in Bristol controlled the contract for Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG). With Somerset the only county in the UK where cricket is the biggest sport, partnering with the Somerset Cricket Foundation was an obvious choice.

The Foundation is a registered charity which aims to make cricket safe, inspiring and inclusive, using the sport to engage and inspire local clubs and communities. With a strategic plan for 2020 to 2025 linked to the English Cricket Board’s Inspired Generations strategy, the organisation was seeking financial support to help adults with disabilities to become active, healthier and happier through cricket.

Medequip’s investment will support winter and summer training and development programmes, including facility hire and coaching resources for the teams, positively impacting communities through cricket.

Medequip is joining other Somerset Cricket Foundation partners including Chance to Shine, a national charity aiming to give all children the opportunity to play, learn and develop through cricket, and the Lord’s Taverners. The objective is to use the power of cricket to develop communities and make a positive difference to people’s lives.

“At Medequip, we’re conscious that our work is all about serving the people in the areas where we work,” stated Medequip’s Managing Director David Griffiths. “We have a programme for identifying and supporting local organisations where we feel we can make a difference, both through financial assistance and through Medequip personnel volunteering at events and fundraisers. Our sponsorship initiatives are increasingly forming an important part of our national community engagement and co-production commitments.”

Plans are already in place for the 2023 season, including involvement with the Foundation’s second Discover ABILITY Day, involving schools and community groups supporting young people with additional needs and disabilities.
