My story

Change Foundation CEO, Andy Sellins and journalist, Nick Ames, will kick-start the charity's 40th Anniversary with a 25 mile walk linking two iconic cricketing arenas along a route with significant historical importance to the sport and to the charity.

On Thursday 22nd April, they will set off from Arundel Castle's cricket ground, the scene of training camps organised by the Foundation for the England Blind Cricket team, and end up at Sussex's Hove ground, the home of what is the oldest existing professional sports club in the world.

The walk also celebrates an area of Britain with deep roots in cricket. The first reference to the game is recorded in the county, dating from 1611, while the first women's match took place in the county 66 years later. The term 'bat' originated in the area, named after the clubs carried by local smugglers, while the first recorded use of the word 'wicket' was discovered scrawled in a Sussex bible.

Andy is a veteran of many such challenges, but for Nick it is a new experience bringing him back full-circle to his days in the early 1980s when he worked for the Change Foundation's previous incarnation, the London Community Cricket Association.

The initial aim is to raise £880 - a sum reached by adding together Nick’s "career" total runs (346) and wickets (314) with Andy's highest individual score of 220.

Funds raised will go towards The Change Foundation's 40th Anniversary fundraising target of £250,000, which will be used to create innovative new ‘sport for social change’ projects across the UK and around the world.
