On Monday September 2, cricket charity Chance To Shine hosts Chance To Dine, a fundraising dinner in the Long Room at Lord’s. It’s a cook-off between four international cricketers, who will each prepare a course to be judged by the guests and a panel of leading chefs and food critics – former winners include Stuart Broad and Alastair Cook. The dinner is followed by an auction and a raffle, with prizes including tickets, a hospitality table for 10 at an England international game in 2020 (reserve price £2,500) and a private coaching session with an England international (reserve price £800).
The cost is £3,150 for a gold table for nine with a VIP cricketer, and £2,350 for a silver table for 10. All profits from the evening will support the charity’s efforts to give girls and boys in the UK the chance to play cricket, collaborating with schools, local clubs and community centres.
