During the evening we will be collecting for “Cricket without Boundaries” – an inspirational UK registered charity working in sub-Saharan Africa. Cricket Without Boundaries uses cricket as a focus for community development and as a vehicle for delivering messages about health and social issues such as HIV and FGM. Gender equality is a fundamental development objective of the charity and in 2017 51% of the children they worked with were girls.
All are welcome!
