The Change Foundation is currently attempting to raise funds to allow their women’s blind cricket team to tour in Nepal and compete against the world’s first women’s vision impaired cricket team. The game between United Kingdom and Nepal would be the first ever women’s blind cricket international cricket match.
Beth Evans who is leading the fundraising says on the fund raising page, “I have a wonderful and inspirational group that are all fundraising to go to Nepal to play the Nepalese female visually impaired team. This team is the first female team in the UK and this tour will see the first ever international female visually impaired cricket matches being played. This trip is truly groundbreaking and will inspire females all around.”
The Nepalese team was founded over four years ago, and has women of all ages playing for it. So far, they have raised £80 of the £1,000 they are seeking, with donations from Carol Driver, Paul Frost and Anonymous.
