We will be supporting Yorkshire County Cricket legend Andrew Gale during his Benefit Year.
The 32-year-old county Captain is being rewarded by YCCC for his outstanding service at the club by honouring him with a Benefit Year that will comprise a series of fundraising events throughout 2016.
He will be raising money for the Professional Cricketers Association Benevolent Fund, the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation and the Yorkshire Children’s Trust – a charity based in Halifax that was set up by parents of families who have children suffering with cancer.
We are also celebrating a ten year anniversary this year – our agency was established in 2006 by Managing Director Andy Hobson – and will be a Corporate Sponsor of Gale’s Benefit Year.
Gale and Hobson were introduced by Huddersfield Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis, who is on the cricketer’s Benefit Year Committee.
“I am absolutely delighted that Fantastic Media are on board to support what we are doing this year,” said Gale. “They are one of the most high profile and well-respected agencies in the North of England and to have their support will have pluses for the events we are hosting and ultimately for the charities that we are supporting.”
“We didn’t think twice about getting involved with Andrew during his Benefit Year,” said Hobson. “He is a true Yorkshire legend and we are delighted to be supporting him and his chosen charities during this important year.”
