Compton Cricket Club

July 25, 2013

This is not a fundraising idea but its a nice story. It shows the importance of sports clubs and societies in local communities. As one of the founders (and homeless activist) Ted Hayes says “young people by nature need a thrill, a vision, a goal, a purpose bigger than their immediate life.”

It ended up going so well that Prince William met them and invited them to play in the UK.

They are currently looking for fundraising to keep the club going.
