Diamonds star Beth Langston admitted she was delighted to be able to help the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation deliver their Crick-EAT initiative through October half-term.
Langston and fellow seamer Steve Patterson, captain of the Yorkshire men’s team, were both involved, with Langston delivering meals to Brudenell Primary School in Harehills, Leeds.
Crick-EAT is an initiative which uses the power of sport alongside delivering free nutritious meals to help children and families who are most in need and most at risk of experiencing holiday hunger.
The YCF teamed up with Morrisons to deliver approximately 2,000 meals and hours of engaging and fun cricket coaching from professionally trained coaches.
The October scheme followed a successful summer programme when 12,000 meals and 1,000 hours of cricket fun were delivered.
Six venues were chosen. The Karmand Centre in Barkerend, the Grange Interlink based on Summerville Rd and the BEAP Community Partnership (BEAP) in Bradford were all involved.
In Leeds, Hovingham Primary School, the Bilal Sports Centre and Brudenell Primary School were all chosen.
Prior to visiting Brudenell, Langston said: “The scheme is so important, and I’m delighted to be able to be a small part of it.
“Hopefully we can help inspire some young cricketers whilst also ensuring they get the food they need during the school holidays.”
