Supporting the Refugee Cricket Project
The Refugee Cricket Project is a charitable offshoot of the Refugee Council and aims to cater for Afghan asylum seeking minors, so that they have a sense of community and identity away from their daily lives of foster families, care homes and appeals.
The partnership was established in 2016 with the first tour taking place that summer.
College provides the accomodation, facilities and transport for the Afghan boys when on tour. College pupils also take a lead in arranging cricket fixtures.
In addition College provides all the necessary cricket equipment, including whites, bats, kit, blazers and training clothing.
This is now an established and enduring commitment with a tour party staying at College in July each year.
