VOLUNTEER FOR CWB!
An unforgettable experience is in store for volunteers across the country who could be on their way to Africa to coach cricket, while delivering vital health messages.
We are looking for volunteers to join us in five African countries in 2018 to coach cricket to thousands of young people. Cricket is used in a completely unique way to raise awareness around HIV/AIDS and FGM. Over the past ten years around 400 volunteers have coached over 250,000 children in Botswana, Cameroon, Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda.

TWO EVENTS COMING UP SOON….
On Sunday 27th August a CWB XI will be taking on a Chance to Shine XI. With an all-day BBQ and bar, and a free coaching session for kids in the morning, this looks set to be a great opportunity for volunteers new and old to get together, reconnect with project teammates, and enjoy a day of cricket and fun in the sun (weather not guaranteed!).
On Friday 6th October CWB are running a golf day fundraiser, at the superb Aldwickbury Park Golf Club, around 30 miles north of London. The event will include breakfast rolls, dinner and 18 holes of golf. At £65 it’s an opportunity keen golfers will not want to miss.
Further details about both events can be found here.
BELLRINGING AT LORD’S!
Congratulations to CWB’s very own Jules Farman who is the winner of The Cricket Community Champion Award – she had the pleasure of ringing the 5 minute bell at the England v South Africa ODI at Lord’s on Monday 29 May. Read the full story here.
WE’VE JUST GOT BACK FROM RWANDA…
In a first for the charity, this summer Cricket Without Boundaries sent an all-university team on a project to Rwanda. Working in partnership with Leeds Trinity University, the project made up part of the professional work placement requirement of the students’ course. Read their travel blogs.
A big thank you to all who donated to our recent appeal to get a motorbike for Mathias, as you can see he has now taken delivery of the bike which will allow him to take cricket and the all-important health messages into another 6 schools in his region. Read more about Mathias’ CWB journey here.
