Bat For A Chance is a charitable initiative set up by Will Gaffney. It aims to help underprivileged children experience the joy of cricket.
We collect and source clothing and equipment, both new and high-quality second hand, for dispatch to schools, clubs and academies all around the world.
To help, you can donate your unused or second-hand cricket clothing and equipment via your school or local club.
I am a young 16 year old cricketer who has been fortunate enough to play cricket in some fantastic locations across the globe from a young age. However doing this has really opened up my eyes as to how fortunate I am and how poor their equipment was at times. I also saw how much some of these children relied on the sport and how much it did for them perhaps giving them a way to escape from rough times.
This then got me thinking about how I can help. By providing cricket kit which they may otherwise not be able to buy for themselves, I hope to be able to enhance children's love of the game.
