Hi, my name is Anthony Narain and I love doing charity work. I have taken part in many events across Europe and even India, and in October 2016 I went to Botswana with Cricket Without Boundaries (CWB). It has turned my world upside down. The things I saw and the conversations I was a part of whilst in Botswana made me realise I live a good healthy life in England, and reminded me of the first 15 years of my life living in Guyana, South America. My life was similar to some of the kids I was with, and right there and then I decided that when I got back to England I was going to make a difference and raise awareness about the struggles a child, family or adult living with HIV/AIDS in Africa must cope with. I wanted to put myself out there, and do something for them. CWB is working in Africa trying to educate kids and teachers through cricket about the risks of HIV/AIDS, how to protect themselves from the disease, and how to find treatment if they are HIV positive. The charity is run on volunteer support with limited resources, and I wanted to raise some money for CWB.
On the 15th November 2018, I will be setting off to Nepal to take on the world’s most famous mountain in aid of Cricket Without Boundaries. This will see me attempt my toughest challenge ever. I have never climbed a mountain in my life or walked any length of time. On this challenge, I will be trekking for 12 long straight days and reaching Everest Base Camp, 5,380m above sea level!
