Chance to Shine sets sights on older age group

Cricket charity Chance to Shine has set its sights on reaching more secondary school age children after celebrating the 2millionth child to pass through the scheme at Lord's.

England stars Graeme Swann and Steven Finn attended a special event at the Home of Cricket, which included a reception with Governer of the Bank of England and Chance to Shine President Sir Mervyn King and the brains behind the scheme, broadcaster Mark Nicholas.

Much of Chance to Shine's success has been achieved at primary school level, where they work alongside MCC to deliver Spirit of Cricket assemblies - which teach children to 'play hard, play fair and have fun.'

But having acheived so much with children aged under 12, Chance to Shine have set their sights firmly on older pupils, with the help using Sport England Lottery funding.
