The LCCC Foundation delivers a range of projects and programmes and events that help develop the game of cricket across the North West. By partnering with Lancashire Cricket Board we are able to increase participation rates, develop and support playing opportunities and encourage a new audience to take an interest in the sport.
Project Front Foot
Whilst our own Haseeb Hameed was making his historic test debut for England against India at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium the LCCC Foundation has been helping to make a difference in the country; joining up with the cricket and education charity Project Front Foot to help them to provide kit and equipment to slum areas of India.
Founded in February 2009, a Registered UK Charity since October 2011, Project Front Foot provides kit, coaching and age group matches for children from Mumbai's Dharavi slum during the November to May season. In addition to their work in Dharavi, they also provide basic packages of kit (bats, tennis balls and wickets) for schools through their Rural Schools Initiative.
As a key partner, the LCCC Foundation provides funding, kit and equipment in order to help Project Front Foot make a real difference to lives of disadvantaged young people in India through cricket.
Sandy Mitchell, LCCC Foundation Director said “We are delighted to be supporting Project Front Foot, providing the finance, kit and equipment they need to make a difference to the lives of more disadvantaged young people through cricket. Our work in the North West is already well established and by partnering up with Project Front Foot we are able to continue to have an impact both home and abroad”.
Vic Mills, Founder of Project Front Foot said “The partnership with the LCCC Foundation is fundamental to the success and development of our work in Mumbai and beyond. In a joint undertaking this Project Front Foot and the LCCC Foundation will provide cricket kit to rural schools that have little in the way of sporting resources thereby assisting the all-round development of young children in some of the worlds most deprived areas”.
