Worcestershire Street 6s
Going into our 4th year Street6’s has helped make a significant difference to over 200 young people across Worcestershire. Changing lives through cricket by educating young people in areas such as drug abuse and knife crime, all whilst learning about teamwork and respect.
These are all young people who thanks to your help are now engaging and learning off each other and feel a part of something. So on behalf of my team and more importantly the kids involved, thank you for your continued support, you really are helping us make a difference to young people across the county.
What is Street6s?
A softball charity cricket event supported by the Worcestershire Ambassadors and in aid of the Worcestershire Cobham Cricket Trust. All played in the middle of Worcester’s High Street – Angel Place!
Our mission is to raise funds and awareness to take cricket to places it isn’t normally played, supporting young children from underprivileged backgrounds right here in Worcestershire. This year we’re aiming to raise funds to provide over 50, 5-8 year olds with the opportunity to take part in All Stars Cricket programme. Just £40 will fund a child into an 8 week programme whereby they receive a bat, ball, bag and a shirt with their name on it. So your support goes a long way.
We are targeting businesses who wish to enter a team of 6-10 people to play fun, softball cricket – no previous bat and ball experience required! Just a desire to have fun, take part and make a difference through the power of cricket! We will give you everything you need: Training – so you know the rules; Personalised team kit – so you look the part; Equipment – so you aren’t left stumped! More importantly we will give you access to the after party at Blackfinch New Road whilst enjoying a drink and some food in front of the iconic view of Worcester Cathedral.
To have fun and connect people through the unique power of cricket. Bringing your teams together to share a great experience, playing somewhere where there are no ball games allowed and in turn raise awareness and funds to support young people right here in Worcestershire. Through our Wicketz hubs we engage with young children in some of the hardest to reach communities. An example of our work is a young boy in Redditch, who’s older brother is a prolific drug dealer. This boy was at risk of following in his brothers footsteps and was regularly getting into trouble with the police. By engaging in the hub this young boy is now engaged in the week and learning valuable life skills. Likewise he is now on first name terms with the police and has a new found respect for them, as well as starting to make positive choices about his future career, all of which wouldn’t be possible without your support in the work of our hubs. This year we’re aiming younger to engage with young kids aged 5-8 year olds, along with their parents.
Where will your donations go?
Our aim this year is to donate free cricket opportunities to young children (5-8 years of age) from families who simply cannot afford to participate.
Just £40 pays for 1 child to have an outstanding experience of cricket in an 8 week cricket programme. The children will also receive a bag, bat, ball and a shirt with their name on it so they all look and feel the same when they arrive at their first session.
Through entering a team you will help us provide 7 young children with the opportunity to take part in cricket!
