Olivia Rae joins our team as a Street Child United Ambassador

Posted on the 19th June 2019

Street Child United are delighted to welcome Middlesex and Scotland cricketer Olivia Rae to our team as an Ambassador.

Olivia, who has played 76 matches for her country, took part in the All Star Game at Lord’s Cricket Ground as part of the Street Child Cricket World Cup 2019 Finals.

Olivia said: “It was a delight to support the Street Child Cricket World Cup and listen to the messages the young people taking part had to share.

“The young people who take part in Street Child World Cups are brilliant role models and everything about how they approach the events is a great example of how to participate in sport – with respect for your teammates and the opposition, enthusiasm, fair play, passion, commitment and pride.

“I am incredibly excited to join Street Child United to work towards the Street Child Cricket World Cup 2023 and look forward to playing a role in helping create a global platform for these inspirational young people.”

Olivia is also the head coach at Rae Cricket Coaching where she’s created an inclusive coaching programme giving equal opportunity for players to develop the technical, tactical and mental aspects required for playing cricket.

Street Child United are thrilled to have Olivia’s support and are very excited to work together on future events.
