Lashings XI v Ugandan XI Charity Cricket Match
Sun 28 May 2017, 09:30 – 17:00 BST
On Sunday 28th May at the Wormsley Cricket Ground, on the Getty Family Estate in Buckinghamshire, there will be a charity Twenty20 match to raise funds for the Uganda Children's Trust Fund (). A team of cricketing stars will play under the leadership of a Lashings XI side against a UCTF Ugandan XI side. The Uganda Children Trust Fund offers underprivileged Ugandan children the chance to succeed in education, in sport and in life. We believe the combination of a good academic education, the opportunity to play and enjoy sport, and the chance to develop the right vocational or entrepreneurial skills will provide vulnerable children from Uganda’s poorest communities the chance to succeed in life. Their future economic security will provide a means to lift their families and communities out of poverty, thus creating positive, and long-lasting, social change. In turn, the creation of equal opportunities for Uganda’s most marginalised and vulnerable youth will foster the development of Uganda as an economically independent, culturally prosperous and meritocratic African nation.
Grounds tickets ( adult £25, U21 £10) include acess to watch the cricket but no hospitality, we encourage you to bring your own picnics and a bottle of beer or two! Hospitality tickets (£60) include: tea and coffee on arrival, a delectable informal BBQ lunch with wine and an afternoon tea. VIP tickets (£100) will also include a Pimms reception and access to the Walled Gardens and Library at the estate. Hospitality and VIP tickets ensure access to participate in the charity auction and parking on site.
To raise further funds, the UCTF will be auctioning off playing places in each team in the morning and afternoon matches and an opportunity to become a Lashings ‘Star’ for the day. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
