Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
The University of Portsmouth Cricket Club are participating in the Great South Run in order to raise funds for the Gary Kirsten Foundation in Cape Town, South Africa.
Gary Kirsten has a passion for the development of sporting talent in South Africa. South Africa has a rich sporting culture and has produced many great cricketers, however there is a lack of Black African cricketers being represented in the South African domestic, first-class and international cricket structures.
Cricket Clubs and schools located within township areas are central to the success of aspiring youngsters who wish to become professional cricketers.
Unfortunately the general state of outdoor practice facilities in these areas are currently not able to provide for the needs of aspiring township cricketers or youngsters who are interested in the game of cricket.
The Gary Kirsten Foundation is proud to be actively working on various projects in the community. From net installations and coach development for the township cricket development initiative , to planning South Africa’s 1st complete artificial cricket field, developing a groomsmen training programme and community sports hubs.
UPCC are raising funds to contribute to the new net installation as well as, new bats, balls, pads and helmets for the township youth.
