INSPIRATIONAL LIFE – The Club were inspired by the life and cricket career of one of their players, Mike Matthews, who passed away in 2014 after a long battle with cancer. They wanted to do something positive in Mike’s memory that would resonate with the values and especially the sense of humour of their friend. The Club also wanted to give something back to the game, and found The Change Foundation who also have a track record of playing cricket in very unusual places around the world.
Phil Tufnell, Ambassador for The Change Foundation says, “This is brilliant and just shows cricket can be played anywhere! It’ll make a great present for any cricket lover and help support the work the charity does in changing the lives of at risk and marginalised young people”.
Malcolm Turness from Wealdstone Corinthians says, “Despite the calendar’s important fund raising potential, it is first and foremost and memorial to our friend Mike Matthews. It is a way of giving something back for the many days and years of enjoyment the game has given us. We are delighted that the proceeds give young disadvantaged people the chance to decide their own lives and futures through the work of The Change Foundation.”
Andy Sellins, CEO of The Change Foundation adds, “We were delighted to have been chosen by Wealdstone CCC to work on the calendar together. The way in which we use cricket to engage with young people and the tribute to WCCC’s colleague, Mike, is most definitely reflected in the look and feel of the calendar. And it was great fun to produce.”
Both WCCC and The Change Foundation agree that purchasing the calendar will help provide new opportunities for young people in the UK and throughout the world that will positively direct their lives to enjoy and value the friendship, generosity, and support that many enjoy through cricket.
