At the heart of all of MCCF’s programmes is a desire to harness the transformative power of cricket to empower young people to reach their full potential, to promote positive physical and mental well-being, and to unite and inspire communities. MCCF delivers across the UK and around the world.
Charles Stanley has supported the MCC Foundation for the past four years. We’ve proudly hosted the annual Carol Concert in the Long Room, sponsored National Hub Competitions, with guests and staff attendance at the finals at Lord’s, and our Charles Stanley cricket team have been put through their paces at the Annual Charles Stanley vs MCCF U15 XI at Lord’s. We are proud to share a bit more information about the work of this fantastic charitable foundation.
Transforming lives in the UK
Within the UK, MCCF’s primary objective is to make cricket a game for all and to ensure better representation in the game by opening access to the talent pathways through our nationwide cricket Hubs programme. The MCCF delivers more than 70 Hubs, engaging over 2,800 young cricketers. More than 30% of the participants are girls, and more than 30% of UK beneficiaries are from ethnically diverse communities.
Lord’s is the only major sports venue in Westminster – a borough of London which houses both great wealth and extreme deprivation. Church Street ward, just down the road from Lord’s, is within the 10% most deprived wards in the UK, with
a third of children needing free school meals. The Foundation works closely with MCC’s Community Development Department to identify and fund projects that will enhance the lives of those living in the communities local to Lord’s.
Transforming lives overseas
Overseas, the MCCF are working to provide life-changing opportunities through cricket and to open up access to the game. The Foundation harnesses the transformative power of cricket and the MCC brand to provide hope and opportunity, and to encourage personal development and positive social change. MCCF has previously supported inspiring projects in Afghanistan and Sri Lanka, and are currently delivering impactful programmes in Nepal, Lebanon, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and South Africa.
