Chance to Shine – Cricket United Day!

Tomorrow is a special day for Chance to Shine and cricket fans. It is Cricket United Day – the UK’s biggest cricket charity awareness and fundraising day.

We are joining force with the Lord’s Taverners and PCA Benevolent Fund to help improve lives through cricket.

We want to turn the Kia Oval into a ‘sea of blue’ tomorrow to raise awareness and funds for the three charities. We’re urging everyone attending to wear blue and help spread the word through social media.

Supporters not at the ground can buy an official Cricket United England cap online for £10.

Children like Becky Irwin will benefit from Cricket United. Becky was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder when she was born. Now 16, her disability only allows her to play specific sports.  “Before I started playing any kind of sport I wasn’t really social. People would constantly stare at me and that made me believe that my disability would always keep me back. After my PE teacher urged me to participate in Table Cricket my life changed significantly. Being in a team has certainly made me more confident and sure about myself.”

Together we can improve lives through cricket. Text CRICKET to 70123 to donate £5 or donate here.
