Our story

A Blues Foundation XI will play a Mintridge Foundation XI in a charity cricket match on Friday 26th August at Sharnbrook & Bromham Cricket Club, Lodge Road, Sharnbrook (start time 5:15pm).

The ideal way to begin the Bank Holiday weekend, the two teams, including star studded line-ups (such as Paralympic Champion, Laura Sugar MBE, plus former rugby and cricket players), will battle it out in a T20 fixture aimed at raising vital funds for both charities.

Families are encouraged to attend and take part in the day’s activities, which will include fun, games, activities and entertainment suitable for all ages. Food, drink and ice cream will be available, alongside a fully licensed bar.

To take part in the evening’s action, spaces on either side are available for £100 and will include a team shirt to be worn on the day, along with playing with cricketing or rugby legends on either side.

The charitable arm of Bedford Blues aims to inspire the Bedfordshire community through the values of rugby for the advancement and promotion of positive and informed lifestyle choices.

The work of Blues Foundation spans three main areas; wellbeing, inclusivity and skills. Through a variety of flagship activation, such as Tackle LIFE, ABILITY Blues and Blues INSPIRE, and tailored activation to suit service users, community participation in healthy recreation is promoted for physical and mental wellbeing.


The Mintridge Foundation harnesses the power of sporting role models to help and influence young people by increasing sports participation and changing behaviour, nurturing sporting talent, enhancing life skills and increasing awareness of the importance of mental and physical wellbeing.

Assisting young people of all ages, abilities and physical capabilities to develop confidence and resilience, the Mintridge Foundation shares many similar values to Blues Foundation as they start a partnership together.
