Every year, our work costs £6 million reaching over 500,000 children and young adults across the country. As an independent charity, we are hugely grateful to everyone who supports us and our mission to give all children the opportunity to play and learn through cricket.

Why your support matters

Supporters who donate funds, time, or gifts in-kind are the reason why Chance to Shine has worked successfully with all 39 country cricket boards to reverse the decline in state schools and take the game to new places. We use cricket to teach vital skills, unite diverse groups, and educate children and young people.

The generosity and commitment of our supporters allows us to continue to fund coaching in state schools and communities, sparking new passions in young people. It can also provide opportunities for us to grow our programmes, significantly increasing reach and impact. 

Don’t take our word for it, hear from the children and teachers we work with - 


If you are considering supporting our School or Street programme, please get in touch to discover the difference you support could make today, nationally or locally.

We make it simple for you, all you have to do is join our Supporters Club, and engage with the community of likeminded supporters that make our work possible.
