10 year anniversary

It was 10 years ago when the three of us founding trustees set off to coach cricket from Cairo to Cape Town as CWB’s first project. We had no idea what to expect from those 7 months, let alone what would become of the embryonic charity that we had just set up. Fast forward 10 years later and its 180,000 kids coached across Africa and almost 4,000 new coaches to train them. I know I speak for Andy and Chris when I say it is one of the things we are most proud of.

Most organisations big or small don’t last 10 years. We have and on the 11 November CWB celebrated its anniversary at the Seven Dials club.

Hosted by Downton Abbey butler, Jim Carter, the evening showcased what CWB does so well. Small, fun yet able to deliver and inspire. Thanks to the superb Simon Fanshawe as auctioneer over £14,500 was raised to help support the next generation of CWB ambassadors and future coaching projects.

On top of the auction we were also treated to a mass “pub quiz” for 150 family and friends delivered by expert quiz-master, Vin Goodwin.

A huge thanks to all of you who attended and made the event such a huge success.

So thanks for all your support and here is to the next 180,000 kids coached.
