To make it possible to change lives through cricket you need some great ideas. You also need some fantastic supporters. Luckily, we’ve got both.

Here are just a few of the Cricket United highlights from the past three years:

The Lord’s Taverners, Chance to Shine and the PCA Benevolent Fund joined forces for the first time to turn the Kia Oval blue on 23 August 2013. The day raised £40,000
