Description of charity's activities and outcomes
The LBW Trust raises money to fund higher education for young women and men in developing cricket playing countries who would not otherwise have the chance at that level of education. The social return on investment from this type of support, particularly in relation to women, is extremely high. We raise money through a combination of events, most notably our highly regarded sell-out annual dinner at the Sydney Cricket Ground each year. We also raise funds through campaigns we run being Batting for Change which is centred around The Big Bash national cricket competition and Women for Change which was established during 2017 and got off to an incredibly successful start. We also receive money from a range of generous corporate and individual sponsors and supporters to whom we are inordinately grateful. We are run by a Board of 9 volunteers. In 2017, our level of fundraising took a step change upwards which was heavily enabled by our decision to take on our first full-time employee; a decision which has proven to be a very sound one. We currently support students (all of whom are funded through educational establishments who we vet carefully in advance, execute a contract with and who then have ongoing annual reporting obligations to us). During 2017, we supported students in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Afghanistan, Uganda, Jamaica and South Africa. During the year, our Women for Change campaign massively exceeded its initial goals and has now enabled us to expand to support more students, overwhelmingly women, in Kenya and Tanzania. Full details of our support, our upcoming events and other ways to stay updated and/or support our work, can be found on our website at
