Dial-A-Flight support return to Barbados for 10th Anniversary match
Jun 27, 2012
January 2013 will see Cricket for Change invited back to Barbados to play in a blind cricket series which will mark the 10th anniversary of when C4C first went to Barbados to help set up The West Indies Blind Cricket Team. The visit will also include a re-staging of a match against a Desmond Haynes Celebrity XI made up of past and present West Indies players.
The C4C squad will be made up of young players from the C4C Visually Impaired programme and will be led by C4C’s Director of Operations and former England VI player, Andy Dalby-Welsh. As well as taking part in the matches, the week long programme will involve the C4C squad coordinating a training programme for local coaches and young blind players.
This return trip is made feasible through the generosity of Dial-A-Flight who have been very supportive of C4C and its overseas development work. C4C would like to take the opportunity to thank Dial-A-Flight for their fantastic support because without it this programme would not be possible.
