YCF hold successful pop-up cricket sessions in Bradford
During May half-term the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation held pop-up cricket sessions across four days in Bradford in partnership with the Bradford Bulls Foundation.
The sessions were aimed at getting children who were off school active and were delivered by a team of coaches including YCF community coach Shannon, who is currently on a university placement with the Bulls.
A total of 65 children took part in the sessions, the youngest of which being just four years of age and the oldest being 12.
They were also from a diverse range of backgrounds, with children from foster care backgrounds and the Pakistani, Hindu and Muslim communities in attendance.
11 of the children also received a free bat and ball courtesy of the YCF for attending three of the four sessions.
We will be hosting further pop-up sessions in Leeds across June and July, with sessions at both Armley Park and Alexandra Park. To find out more see the below poster for all of the details.
