LORD’S TAVERNERS CHARITY CELEBRATE YOUNG DISABLED PARTICIPANTS
ALTER Charity PR Client Lord's Taverners Celebrate their Young Super 1s Participants at Lord's Cricket Ground
Published On: 29th October 2021
Charity PR is an area that ALTER pride themselves on, and that’s because of the clients we get to work with.
Foremost among those is the Lord’s Taverners, a cricket charity that empowers disadvantaged and disabled young people through cricket.
The work they do is incredible, and recently, we were invited to see the fruits of those labours at the Super 1s awards night.
Hosted at Lord’s Cricket Ground, the event celebrated the achievements of members of the disability-focused programme, that has recently drawn support from the England and Wales Cricket Board, in an effort to make a hub available in every county in the country.
The home of cricket witnessed the presentation of awards to three inspiring individuals who take part in the national disability cricket programmes.
Elliot Wembridge, George Hiley and James Grindrod were the three participants who were presented with their trophies on the night by a comedian and host of Channel 4’s The Last Leg, Adam Hills.
They got this much-deserved recognition on the back of their achievements in the past year which includes coming out of their shell and helping others at their Super 1s hub, providing support for fellow participants in lockdown through coaching videos and completing a coaching qualification to teach table cricket in schools, and coming through the Super 1s programme, then going on to find full-time employment.
The award winners showcase the development that can be made by young people living with disabilities through involvement with the programme.
You can see some truly moving testimonials about Elliot below, with George and James’ stories at the bottom of the article:
This work wouldn’t be possible without partners like the Berkeley Foundation, as well as donations from supporters and members across the country.
ALTER and the Lord’s Taverners have worked together regularly over the past few years, but a true highlight of the partnership is the Lloyd Scott Three Peaks Challenge activity.
