All the Stars Align for Wales with our Chance to Shine Report for schools


 Chance to Shine is a major supporter of cricket in Wales. It supports our schools outreach where we engage with approximately 50,000 children across 2/5 schools in Wales.

Chance to Shine has (27 May) published its Impact Report 2020, detailing the work of the charity in the previous Academic Year. During that period, the charity gave over 600,000 children across Wales and England, in one in four state schools across the country, the opportunity to play, learn and develop through cricket.

With the published impact report for 2020 are two stories from Wales. One involving Sam Painter's work at Conwy CC's All Stars and a second story involving Terry Dixon's work at Newbridge on Wye Primary School supporting Builth Wells CC

Development Manager for Cricket Wales Mark Frost said "We are really appreciative of the support we get to up skill teachers. take cricket to schools that don't play, spread the word about our great game and especially to support the recruitment of new girls and boys into our All Stars Programme. Over 6,000 hours of contact time goes into a normal year of activity"

Chief Executive of Chance to Shine Laura Cordingley said “We’re immensely proud of everything that is documented in our latest Impact Report. It shows the incredible work that goes on in schools and communities up and down the country when we can deliver our programmes.I would like to thank all our amazing supporters, whose generosity allows us to have such a positive impact on the young people we work with. We are also indebted to our delivery partners and their inspiring coaches who make the charity such a success.” With the charity facing difficult financial times as a result of the cancellation of many of its fundraising events, Charity Patron Adrian Beecroft is matching donations made this summer.
