Lord's Taverners nominated for Charity Film of the Year
The Lord’s Taverners are very pleased to have been nominated for the Charity Film of the Year by the Charity Film Awards. Our film, entitled ‘Giving young people a sporting chance’ is competing with 40 other charity films in the “£5,000,000 - £50,000,000” category, for charities who had an annual turnover in that range last year.
The award is put to a public vote, which is currently ongoing, before a shortlist is put to a judging panel who select winners in each category. The public vote opened on 27 October and runs until 15 December, and the judging process will take place in January 2018 before the awards ceremony in March.
This comes off the back of a successful year for the charity which has seen a significant expansion of our cricket programmes. The Wicketz programme has been able to expand into Manchester, Bristol and Glasgow as part of ambitious expansion plans over the next few years
This year’s table cricket competition, which culminated in an exciting finals day at Lord’s saw over 300 schools compete in the early rounds, before a final nine made it to the showpiece event held in the Nursery Pavilion, attended by Radio 1 DJ Greg James and former Surrey and England cricketer Zafar Ansari.
It is not however, just on the cricket field where the Lord’s Taverners have been making a huge impact. Programmes such as wheelchair basketball have continued to thrive, whilst Lord’s Taverners minibuses are still an ever present on the road.
