On 26th July 2019, online marketing agency DigitalNext are holding a Business Cricket Tournament at Lindow Cricket Club in aid of GMYN and businesses are invited to enter a team.

Officials, umpires and scorers for the event will be provided by Warwickshire Cricket Club to ensure fair play, while the Lindow Cricket Club has been chosen as the host venue because of its stunning location and facilities.

The afternoon will also feature inflatables, hot tubs, food and drink stalls plus VIP areas, alongside music and DJ, making it a great family-friendly event for those who want to spectate.

Justin Blackhurst, CEO at DigitalNext, said: “We wanted to support the amazing work of the GMYN.  With the Cricket World Cup being held in the UK, closely followed by The Ashes, a cricket tournament seemed the obvious choice.  As well as giving businesses something to compete for, there’ll be lot of entertainment for those who just want to come and watch.”

Alex Fairweather, CEO and founder of GMYN, said: “Young people across Greater Manchester live in care, are care leavers or live in poverty and do not have opportunities to develop basic life skills and engage with positive activities. Because of events like this, GMYN are able to provide projects to engage and inspire them towards a positive future.”
