Chance to Shine Chairman’s Challenge

This summer, all donations to Chance to Shine during an Investec Ashes Test match will be doubled!

The Chance to Shine chairman Adrian Beecroft, along with some other very generous individuals, are challenging Chance to Shine supporters to dig deep during each and every game by offering to match their donation, £1 for £1.

Chance to ShineFor example, your donation of £15 would become £30 - meaning that two children could benefit from Chance to Shine for a whole year, rather than just one.

But you’ll need to be quick! Not only will access to the pot of money slam shut at the end of each Test, the matched funding pot is limited, so please act fast if you’d like your gift to be doubled.

What’s more, any money left in the matched funding pot at the end of the Series will be given back to the contributors, meaning it’ll be lost forever! We’re sure you’d love for Chance to Shine to receive every single pound from the pot, so please do give generously.

Fancy taking on the Chairman and his team? Just make a donation during one of the following Test matches:

Trent Bridge - First Test
Wednesday 10th July – Sunday 14th July

Lord's - Second Test
Thursday 18th July – Monday 22nd July

Old Trafford - Third Test
Thursday 1st August – Monday 5th August

Emirates Durham ICG - Fourth Test
Friday 9th August – Tuesday 13th August

Wormsley - England Women v Australia Women Test
Sunday 11th August – Wednesday 14th August

Kia Oval - Fifth Test
Wednesday 21st August – Sunday 25th August
