The Foundation at the ODI
Boundaries for Life – All spectators over the age of 35 years could partake in a free 15 minute health check provided by the Boundaries For Life team. The service was a great way of giving your body a quick MOT in relaxed surroundings. The team administered 60 health checks during the day ensuring fans were in tip top condition for the rest of the season.
Army Reserve Force 207 Unit –The locally based Army Reserve Force 207 Unit also joined us to provide information and demonstrations on resuscitation and lifesaving along with Crimestoppers who were there to promote their service to the public.
At lunchtime we provided the crowds with some fantastic entertainment by working with Chant Productions and a number of local schools who performed a medley of uplifting songs from the pitch.
Supported by our wonderful volunteers the sales of our wristbands and raffle tickets also went well generating just under £4,500 which brings our total fundraising for The Ashes and the ODI to just under £30,000 !! THANK YOU!
We were also joined by our Young Ambassador Colson Smith, a huge cricket fan who fulfilled a lifelong ambition to meet David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd.
It was lovely to meet you all and thank you to everyone who has supported us over the Summer, keep checking our website for news on how we will be using the money to inspire our local community further.
