Weʼre raising £10,000 to To help continue to fund the work of the Cricket Federation for People with Disabilities by empowering disabled people through Cricket.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In November 1994 the Cricket Federation for People with Disabilities was formed by Dick and Fred Wildgoose to run high profile matches and give disabled cricketers the same opportunities as their able bodied counterparts to progress through the sport. Matches at high profile county cricket grounds would also spread the word much more effectively.
The results of this work for the people with disabilties is that they grow in confidence and ability, they self worth and belief improves and thier social skills and people confidence grows as well. These people get to play cricket at some of the top cricket grounds around the country, including Lords, Old Trafford, Swelec, Newport Gwent to name a few. Our membership is spread across the UK as far North as Perth in Scotland and as far South as Somerset. We have members in England, Wales and Scotland, so as you can guess it is not a cheap to run. Unfortuately our funding has been cut so in order for us to contiune our work we need to find some more revenue streams or the CFPD will come to an end.
