Sleep out at Lord’s to support the Street Child Cricket World Cup

Posted on the 22nd August 2018

Guy Lavender, MCC CEO and Secretary, and John Wroe, Street Child United Co-Founder and CEO, will be taking part in the CEO Sleepout at Lord’s

On 29 October 2018 Lord’s Cricket Ground will be hosting a CEO Sleepout, where London’s most compassionate business leaders will get together to raise funds to support homeless people by giving up their bed for one night in order to help those who don’t have one at all.

We’re delighted that Street Child United has been chosen as a beneficiary of the CEO Sleepout, and we are excited to invite you to join us and pledge to raise £2,000 via sponsorship. The event will start at 8pm, with various activities taking place including the chance to have a coaching session in the MCC Cricket Academy before bedding down for the night in the Mound Stand.

The money we receive from the event will help us run the Street Child Cricket World Cup London 2019, when we’ll bring street-connected young people from across the world together to play cricket and contribute to a unique Congress to campaign for a brighter, safer future for children everywhere.

If you’d like to take part in the CEO Sleepout to raise money for the Street Child Cricket World Cup, please click the link below and follow the instructions on the form. By selecting Street Child United after “how did you hear about this event?” we will benefit from the money you raise.
