MCC Delighted To Support Access Sport
During the 2018 season Marshfield Cricket Club are delighted to be supporting the charity Access Sport. We will be supporting the charity by fundraising and trying to help awareness of the good work they do. So who are Access Sport? The following is taken from their website (https://www.accesssport.org.uk/):
What We Do
Access Sport enhances the life prospects of disadvantaged children by providing opportunities to experience and enjoy the power of sport.
We do this by building thriving community sports clubs, led by inspirational volunteers, in the most disadvantaged urban areas. These clubs then provide life-changing opportunities for local, vulnerable young people, whilst creating a lasting, locally-owned community resource.
Our work supports young people aged 5-25, with a particular emphasis on under 18's who are disabled, disadvantaged or excluded from society.
We have a multi-sport approach which recognises the importance of different sports in different settings for different participants, enabling maximum inclusivity and impact - from BMX to boxing; from running to rugby; from sitting volleyball to sailing.
Our unique experience across a wide range of sports and settings in leading cities has led us, in the twelve years since we were established in 2004, to become nationally recognised as an innovative leader in the field of community sport. In 2016 we hold particular leadership roles in the development of BMX cycling in the UK and the development of inclusive sport for disabled young people.
