Event dates: Thursday 1st April–Friday 30th April
Throughout April, a number of our Wicketz development officers and Lord’s Taverners staff will be taking part in a challenge to raise funds for our Lord’s Taverners Wicketz programme. Wicketz is a community cricket programme, targeting young people aged 8-19 in areas of deprivation. We use cricket as a tool to engage young people into a weekly community hub, and use those sessions not only for sport, but to deliver important messages and education around things that negatively affect young people and their communities.
The Covid-19 pandemic has been an incredibly difficult time for everyone, but in particular our participants who have had this free weekly provision taken away for the last year. This is why our team have decided to take on the challenge of running/cycling/swimming/walking the distance between our most southerly and most northern Wicketz projects, Plymouth to Glasgow and back over the course of April. We have rounded this up to make it 1,000 miles!
The Lord's Taverners is the UK's leading youth cricket and disability sports charity. We break down barriers and empower disadvantaged and disabled young people to fulfil their potential and build life skills.
Please support our participants taking part in this challenge and help to make a difference to young disadvantaged people in the UK, as we look to re-engage and rebuild communities throughout 2021.
