Story

 

Hi, thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Almost 1 in 4 adults in Uganda are HIV positive and many of them don't even know!  It is estimated that by 2010 more than 20 percent of all children in Uganda were orphaned and a large number of children are also infected. It is not just medicine that is needed, but education and a focus on changing behavioural patterns.

The link between Sport (particularly cricket) and HIV/AIDS is not an obvious one to everyone. However, the CWB charity has found that sports coaches are in a unique position to impart a message of staying healthy and doing so within a fun and trusting environment. So, I'll be spending two weeks in April 2013 coaching cricket to kids in schools in Northern Uganda - an adventure and a challenge [for me and the kids too]

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please give generously to this worthwhile cause - donate now.

Yours in Cricket

Many thanks to all those who have so kindly and geneously donted. I'm back now from the superb African adventure but still a few quid short of my target. Please would those who've made promises please donate promptly so I can release the funds to the charity. Thanks ....
