Lancashire Cricket announces the launch of the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower across the Club, as part of the ongoing Red Rose Together campaign which aims to make Lancashire Cricket and Emirates Old Trafford an inclusive and welcoming environment for everybody.

The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower is for people with non-visible disabilities to voluntarily share they have a disability or condition that may not be immediately apparent.

The initiative includes lanyards and pins branded with the distinctive Sunflower symbol, which discreetly indicates that the wearer may require additional support, help or a little more time.

The displaying of the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower will help the Club to offer better support to its staff, Members, supporters, and all those visiting Emirates Old Trafford throughout the year.

Speaking about the launch of the campaign, Helen Davies, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Lead, said:

“Here at Lancashire Cricket and Emirates Old Trafford, we are fully supportive of the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Network, which is a great way for those in need to seek additional support.

“As part of our Red Rose Together campaign, which launched earlier this year, we are continually looking to ensure that cricket is accessible for all and that everybody feels welcome and included at our venue.

“We fully understand that not all disabilities are visible and committing to the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower network is an important step towards further inclusivity and accessibility at the Club.”

 

Paul White, CEO of Hidden Disabilities Sunflower, added:

“We are delighted that Lancashire Cricket has joined the global Hidden Disabilities Sunflower network. It demonstrates their commitment to inclusivity for their members and supporters. The Sunflower offers a silent communication that wearers may require additional support, time, and understanding. There are hundreds of invisible disabilities, and the Sunflower represents them all, significantly contributing to Lancashire Cricket and Emirates Old Trafford’s accessibility.”


The Sunflower is available to any Member or supporter with an invisible disability free of charge from their on-site Club shop.

Red Rose Together is Lancashire Cricket's campaign to highlight the range of the Club’s key activities with the sole aim of supporting the growth of cricket across the North-West and champion the work that is undertaken to make cricket more accessible, inclusive, and enjoyable for everyone.
