Friends Provident offers children a chance to shine

Children from a selection of schools in Salisbury have the chance to meet former England and Surrey star Graham Thorpe at South Wiltshire Cricket Club.

The Salisbury Cricket Festival, in association with Friends Provident, is part of The Cricket Foundation's initiative to educate children through cricket.

Over 60 children from local schools will take part in the cricket tournament day, with a chance to test the skills they have honed throughout the year. The Cricket Foundation's campaign aims to help young people acquire important life skills, and values for their future lives through the sport.

Chance to Shine is delivered across England and Wales with 400 cricket clubs and 4000 schools participating.  Each project provides structured coaching and competition as well as equipment, facility development and training for teachers and coaches.
