The Cricket Foundation is proud to have recently launched the Guardianship Scheme.
The Guardianship Scheme will enable the Cricket Foundation to create and maintain Chance to Shine and StreetChance projects throughout England & Wales, giving children the opportunity to take part in cricket and to develop key life skills and values. By becoming a Guardian your impact will be wider than affecting just one child, team, class, school, project or County/Borough – you will be making it possible for Chance to Shine and SreetChance programmes to continue in the future. We would be grateful for any support you feel able to offer.
The LCB has been able to deliver a comprehensive Chance to Shine programme between October 2011 - September 2012 and the following Curriculum and Extra-Curriculum Coaching session figures shows how vital this programme is to our delivery within state schools.
There were 2,773 Curriculum Coaching sessions delivered which amounted to over 5,229 hours of delivery. 11,073 boys and 11,772 girls received cricket coaching in state schools, 13,750 of those came from a Minority Ethnic Community background and 2,465 had Special Educational Needs.
The Extra-Curriculum sessions saw 1,402 sessions delivered with over 1,781 hours coached. 2,563 boys and 1,546 girls received coaching of which 3,873 came from a MEC background and 164 had Special Educational Needs.
Dave Reddy (LCB Chance to Shine Officer) said: "Chance to Shine continues to be a tremendous success providing the opportunity for young people to take part in cricket, proving to be one of the most successful Grassroots School Sports Initiatives not only in Lancashire, but in the Country."
There are many monthly or annual guardianship levels that you can support and details of these can be found at: www.chancetoshine.org/guardianshipscheme.
