I'm taking part in Young Cricket Leaders to raise £1200 for my cricket community and for The Ruth Strauss Foundation post pandemic.

New stretch target

Increase the amount given to each cause so that they can make a discernible difference.

Fund some specialist cricket coaching and fitness training for the club and school, but mainly focus on the school cricket facilities.

Support the Ruth Strauss Foundation in their vital work, especially around the emotional support they provide for grieving families.


Post pandemic I'm taking part in the Young Cricket Leaders programme, which is a leadership and volunteering scheme. Now more than ever it's important to reconnect with our communities and for young people to focus on wellbeing through sport.

I'm passionate about cricket and believe that it should be accessible for all.

I have smashed my first two targets of £600 and £900 thanks to the generosity of my family, friends and some amazing corporate sponsors.

So I'm hoping to raise a minimum of £1200 in total for the following three causes:-

£400 for Theale and Tilehurst Cricket Club. I've been at the club since the start of my cricket journey. It's not only inclusive but has given me a great player pathway to develop my cricket. This will receive match funding so will be an massive £800 for the Douai Abbey pitch upgrade project.

£400 for Reading School. We have some great cricketers but the school receives no specific financial provision for cricket. Any funds raised will go towards improving future cricket provision at the school.

£400 for The Ruth Strauss Foundation because they support families who have lost a parent and fund research into non smoking lung cancers.

How I will do this:

- Collect donations for cricket related volunteering hours- club and school. I am aiming a minimum of 50 hours

- selling my nearly new books, trainers and old toys

-£5 from my parents for each match wicket taken 

-producing some corporate videos and donating all the money

-helping my grandparents with jobs

-anything else legal that will pay me some money. 100% will go towards the project

So please give what you can, no matter how much. A few pounds can make a huge difference to support communities through cricket.

Thank you 

Milan (Milzy) Gupta
