CWB in the News

Jan 02 2013

It was a hectic festive period for CWB as we featured on BBC's Five Live and breakfast shows, thanks to Midlands journalist, Phil Mackie.  If you missed the pieces, here is a recap of the media coverage we have enjoyed in winter 2012.

The idea was conceived a while ago by Phil, as he saw an opportunity to delve deeper into the charity and also highlight the work in Rwanda and Kenya. The end result was fantastic reflecting the hard work that had been put into the charity but also the effectiveness of the message that our volunteers are always looking to put across.

The radio show (aired on Christmas Day) featured interviews with many volunteers including Lee Booth, Jules Farman and Carl Ferguson and England Womens star Holly Colvin and Sara Hickman from Kenya. The feature can be found here http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/5lspecials

We were also profiled on BBC breakfast (again thanks to Phil) and the piece looked specifically at the work done in Rwanda again featuring the Autumn 2012 trip.

The coverage on Rwanda didn't stop there as the ICC produced a fantastic short feature on the work of CWB in the growing African state. This can be found here - http://t.co/0ulzod5T

Lastly, we have now obtained permission to share the fine article from Luke Sellers in the Times on our work in Kenya and also Mike Atherton's piece on the Maasai Cricket Warriors. They can be viewed here.

We would like to thank Phil and Luke for their brilliant work on the pieces, they really do reflect the hours that have been put into CWB. Onwards and upwards for the CWB!
