Alex WintersCbeebies presenter
I played cricket as a youngster and I'm a big sports fan in general. I recently moved to Manchester and wanted to support my local cricket club to get young people inspired and involved with cricket so I was delighted to be an Ambassador for the Foundation. To see the number of projects the Foundation delivers is amazing; hopefully over the coming months and years the whole community will be involved and it's great I can be a part of that.

It’s a great honour for me to be working alongside all the other Ambassadors for the LCCC Foundation. As someone who loves cricket, and a lifelong Lancashire supporter, it’s a real honour for me to be asked to play my part in taking this great game, and our great club, to the next generation of North West youngsters.

I feel very privileged to be an Ambassador for the LCCC Foundation. I recently discovered I am related to Ernest and his brother JT Tyldesley who played for Lancashire for many years so it’s a great pleasure for me, many generations down the line, to be supporting the Foundation and the work they do inspiring the community, promoting healthy lifestyles and encouraging young people to engage in physical activity.

Music is our first love but sport comes a really close second. We are proud to be Ambassadors for the Foundation supporting their work in the community. By backing the Foundation we hope that more young people will become involved and inspired by the work they do.
James AndersonEngland & LCCC first team
I am delighted and honoured to be named as the first Ambassador of the LCCC Foundation. I made my debut for Lancashire in 2001 and am happy to support my county’s involvement in the community. The Club has helped with my development and I am confident that the LCCC Foundation will do the same for many others in the North West.
Joe HartEngland and Man City keeper
I am delighted to become an Ambassador for the LCCC Foundation. I’m looking forward to working with the other Ambassadors and the team to support the work of the Foundation and I’ll do whatever I can to help. And of course, if I get to watch a bit of cricket on the way, then that is a bonus!
Kyle HoggLCCC first team player
I wanted to be an Ambassador to help spread the work of the Foundation to people and places who wouldn't normally be associated with cricket. You get to do a lot of great things playing cricket but the work of the Foundation is most important, especially when you see younger people being involved in projects and activity that they wouldn't have normally engaged in.
Mark ChapmanRadio 5 live presenter
I am delighted and proud to be a Foundation Ambassador. It goes without saying about the importance of sport in our lives, particularly for young people. That's why the work of the Foundation is something I am thrilled to be associated with.
Paul HortonLCCC Vice Captain
I'm thrilled to join the other first team players in becoming a Foundation Ambassador. It's great to see young people learning the importance of healthy lifestyles and exercise. I recently attended a Healthy Hearts workshop and saw how much the project meant to the children who were taking part, I'm hoping I can see more of the Foundations projects first-hand and give my support as I work closer with them in my role.

As a Lancashire lad I'm delighted to be an Ambassador. As part of my role I get to meet the young people involved in the Foundation which gives you the feel good factor! Young people have great ideas, which is why it's key that the Foundation works so closely with them. I hope my involvement can help the Foundation grow even further.
Phil NevilleMan United first team coach
I’m really excited to be joining the LCCC Foundation as an Ambassador. I have always loved Cricket and I have a huge affinity towards the Club from my time playing here as a youngster. I’m looking forward to working with the Foundation to encourage more young kids to get involved in what is a great sport.

I think the work of the Foundation is brilliant, for me personally I've always enjoyed cricket, a disability can slow you down but it's no barrier to getting involved. It's great to be around young people who are willing to help and are interested in the work the Foundation does. I'm thrilled to be an Ambassador to help spread the work of the Foundation and help gain support.
Tom SmithLCCC first team player
As an Ambassador and player it's great that I can help promote the benefits of cricket and the work of the Foundation to the community. I feel it is important that young people are at the heart of the Foundation and the Club and it's great that the Foundation gives them a voice. It's fantastic to be able to give back to the community through my work as an Ambassador, I really enjoyed our visit to Wood Street Mission and I'm really keen to be involved longer term in more of the Foundations projects.

I was over the moon when I was asked to be a Young Ambassador and didn’t hesitate to say yes! I love cricket and as a teenager myself it’s great to see all the projects the Foundation are working on that involve young people, I can’t wait to be more involved.
I am very lucky to be a Young Ambassador for the Foundation they have helped me in a lot of ways, always supported and taken care of me. Through the Foundation's work I have been able to coach and inspire lots of young people in local schools. The work of the foundation is amazing and I'm so grateful for being part of that!!
Tom BaileyLCCC scholarship player
The Foundation have supported me through my scholarship and as a player it’s great to see them promoting active and healthy lifestyles to young people of all ages and backgrounds. I’m happy I can be involved in promoting a sport I love, encouraging others to get involved.
