Weʼre raising £3,000 to help fund my participation in the Under 17 Girl's Indoor Cricket World Series. As part of my fundraising I am running a 10k.

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.
I feel very honoured and excited to have been chosen to represent my country at the Indoor Cricket World Series in New Zealand. I have been training hard since March and will have to train hard over the next few weeks to ensure that I am ready for the challenge of facing Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. To build up my fitness and to raise money I am going to take part in the Leicester 10k. If you could please sponsor me to do this and help me realise my ambition I would be so thankful to you.
Indoor cricket is a relatively new format of the game. There is no funding provided so the players need to raise money to cover the cost of kit, flights and accommodation. To enable me to go I need to raise £3,000.

About the fundraiser
I played in an indoor tournament in March and was invited to a series of trials for the England Under 17s. I couldn't believe it when I got in. I never thought I would have the opportunity to represent my country and play against Australia, New Zealand and South Africa!
