“The funding for the tour is completely outside of corporate support and I congratulate those parents and families that worked hard at our various fundraising activities to give their child a wonderful cricketing experience.

“I also wish to record our immense gratitude to the generous hospitality of Bedes School who have provided their facilities at an excellent rate. I thank Head Master Richard Maloney, Admissions Manager Sally Wellings and Head of Operations David Byrne specifically for their incredible contributions.”
