Yorkshire Bank is excited to announce its ‘Giving Bat to You’ campaign which gives cricket fans the chance to win a limited edition Gray-Nicolls cricket bat this summer.

The new title sponsor of the ECB's domestic 40-over competition has formed a partnership with one of the world's leading cricket manufacturers to give away 150 cricket bats between May 3 and September 21.

Yorkshire Bank will give away a Gray-Nicolls cricket bat every day throughout the Yorkshire Bank 40 season via its Facebook page. To be in with a chance of winning one of their top of the range bats, all you need to do is upload a photograph that illustrates what cricket means to you to the ‘Giving Bat to You’ campaign app on the Yorkshire Bank Cricket Facebook page.

It could be a photograph of you playing, celebrating with your team-mates, or a shot with your favourite player of all-time. If it shows us why you love cricket, then we want to see it!

"Yorkshire Bank's 'Giving Bat to You' campaign rewards fans for supporting cricket and aims to get more people picking up a bat and playing the sport in their communities this summer," said Alec Stewart, England's most-capped Test cricketer and Yorkshire Bank Cricket ambassador.

"As part of the campaign, Alastair Cook, Paul Collingwood and I will be hosting batting masterclasses across the country and helping the Bank demonstrate their care and support for local cricket."

Nick Wilton, brand manager at Gray-Nicolls, said: "Gray-Nicolls are excited to be part of such an excellent campaign. It's going to be a huge summer for cricket and I'm sure 'giving bat to cricket' will catch the eye of every cricket fan and player in England."

Cricket fans will also be able to win tickets to watch their favourite team in the Yorkshire Bank 40 competition.
