Ben Fraser - Wicketz Development Officer- Leeds & Bradford

At the Foundation I am tasked with coordinating the Wicketz project in Leeds and Bradford. The over-arching vision of the project is to channel the power of cricket as a tool for change, social cohesion and making a difference to the lives of people in deprived areas.

Prior to joining the Foundation, I worked on an NCS backed social action programme, had a stint as a teaching assistant in a pupil referral unit and led on the ‘Run Leeds’ citywide recreational running project and I helped to set up the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation Running Club, the #RoseRunners.

Away from work you’ll find me out on a jog, spinning vinyl or with my head stuck in a book!
