Using the power of cricket alongside delivering free, nutritious meals we support young people and families who are most in need and most at risk of experiencing holiday hunger during the school holidays.

This year, we teamed up with MyLahore – an award-winning Bradford-based restaurant and events ground – to help us on our mission to fight holiday hunger. Over the year, MyLahore will provide thousands of free nutritious meals to children during school holidays.
