10th July 2018
Barker Associates were delighted to attend Leigh Academies Trust PCA England Masters Cricket Gala at Bexley Cricket Club on Friday 30th June 2018. The event raised over £17,000 for students throughout the Leigh Academies Trust.
Attendees enjoyed a fantastic day's cricket starting with a primary school kwik cricket festival and finishing with a 25 overs match between the PCA Masters and the Leigh Academies Trust XI. Students were pitched against some England greats such as Mark Ramprakash, Dominic Cork, Matthew Hoggard and captained by former England fast bowler Alex Tudor.
A charity lunch and auction was enjoyed by all and a very entertaining speech was delivered by ex-Chairman of selectors, Geoff Miller. Barker Associates were pleased to sponsor the LAT XI kit.
This was a throughly enjoyable and professionally organised day showcasing how Multi Academy Trusts can use innovative fund raising solutions to drive their education objectives.
