"Police engaging with youth projects is key to us all moving forward as a community....We felt honoured to be invited to 'challenge' the youth to a game....what is important is not who wins but instead it is that everyone enjoys themselves, that we all work together as a team and that those attending learn to apply themselves, learn skills, learn to work together as part of a team and most of all have fun!”"
Raising money with tea towels, cup cakes and a scooter race!
Aug 7, 2012
All the children, staff, PTA and parents of The Park Kindergarten School in Battersea, have been working very hard over the last school year to raise a fantastic £3400 for the ongoing awareness and work of Cricket for Change.
Back in the January of 2011, the PTA of The Park Kindergarten kindly chose C4C as their 'Charity of the Year' and from that moment on had fun working hard to raise the amazing amount as mentioned.

The school said, "The Park Kindergarten in Battersea has thoroughly enjoyed raising funds for Cricket for Change; from cake bakes, to sponsored scoots, to personalised paintings, Christmas cards and tea towels, the children were equally involved as the parents every step of the way and many cupcakes have been eagerly consumed in the name of the charity!
We wish Cricket for Change all the best with their fabulous initiatives and look forward to keeping in touch with the charity".
Cricket for Change are extremely grateful for all the hard work that everyone has done in raising funds for the charity and everyone at The Park should be extremely proud of themselves! Special thanks should also go to Henrietta, Kelly and Caroline.
