GIVING YOUNG PEOPLE A 'SPORTING CHANCE'

lord's taverners impact report sports cricket charity 2016

We enable young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and those with disabilities to enjoy sport.

In addition to the young people we support, we measure our impact by the 'sporting chances' we create.

What is a sporting chance?
• It’s the chance to interact, play and train
• The chance to compete, win and lose
• The chance to learn, have fun and make friends

Every time our work directly impacts the life of a young person, we create a new sporting chance for them.

Our latest Impact Report highlights how we delivered over 1 million new sporting chances in 2016, which will create millions more in the years to come.

We’ve achieved this by providing:
40 specially adapted minibuses in the 40th anniversary of the programme
23 sensory rooms and 7 outdoor play spaces
• Recycled kit for 13 countries
77 multi-sports wheelchairs
• More than 45,000 boys and girls with the chance to enjoy cricket through community programmes
2,512 sessions in our disability cricket programmes
