• Hospital visits
• Coaching sessions
• Presentation evenings

A highly successful education programme was established with Selworthy Special School which saw Somerset players help to deliver numeracy, literacy, healthy eating and physical education sessions. Somerset players took an active role in helping to deliver All Stars cricket sessions across the region. Our community work was also a major factor in the Club winning the Investing in Somerset prize at the highly prestigious Somerset Business Awards.

2018 has been another strong year financially for Somerset County Cricket Club.
