Glamorgan players to support Lords Taverners Wicketz programme

7 Apr 2022 | Community

Kiran Carlson and Sam Northeast will be helping to empower young people from disadvantaged communities through cricket in Wales this summer, by taking part in the Lord’s Taverners Runs for Change campaign.

When the county season begins this week Carlson and Northeast will be helping the charity raise money with every run they score. You can sponsor each run scored for as little, or as much as you like – and you can cap the maximum amount you’d like to donate, while also choosing whether you donate for a single match, month or year.

All funds raised will go towards the Lord’s Taverners charity Wicketz programme delivered in conjunction with Cricket Wales, which supports some of the most marginalised and at-risk young people in Wales facing the challenges of inequality.

Wicketz is about improving the prospects of young people and helping them gain the skills they need to thrive and realise their potential through cricket. This is about much more than cricket – Wicketz provides opportunities for young people to develop an understanding of their own wellbeing, improve their quality of life and develop key skills such as confidence, resilience, respect, teamwork and leadership.
