Smile Group Travel become official partner of the Lord's Taverners
Smile Group Travel have joined forces with the Lord’s Taverners having agreed a three-year partnership with the UK’s leading youth cricket and disability sports charity.
Along with offering members of the charity the chance to join their exclusive tour packages around the world, the Smile Group Travel logo will appear on the shirts of the playing members of the celebrity Cricket XI at their matches across the UK.
The Cricket XI, which has helped raise millions of pounds to enhance the lives of disabled young people through sport and recreation, have a busy 2017 ahead of them with a tour to Corfu planned along with a packed fixture list that includes games at Cholmondeley Castle, Hurlingham Club, Goodwood, Bristol County Ground and the Swalec Stadium in Cardiff.
The Lord’s Taverners aims to give disadvantaged and disabled young people a sporting chance. Working with some of the most marginalised and at risk young people in the UK, last year it donated £3.4m to help young people of all abilities and backgrounds participate in sporting activities and created more than 1million sporting chances, which will create millions more in the years to come.
Lord’s Taverners CEO Paul Robin said: “We’re delighted to announce this partnership with Smile Group Travel that will help us continue our work with some of the most marginalised and at risk young people in the UK.”

Our tours are distinctive for their quality, meticulous accuracy, originality, value and fun.”
