The Tom Maynard Trust will exist initially to help the development of aspiring disadvantaged cricketers and other sportspeople who require support with different aspects of their career development, including bursaries, help with training and education, financial support for overseas placements and assistance with kit and equipment.
DONATIONS TO THE TOM MAYNARD TRUST CAN BE MADE BY CONTACTING JON REES, CARSTON ACCOUNTANTS, TUDOR HOUSE, 16 CATHEDRAL ROAD, CARDIFF CF11 9LJ. CHEQUES SHOULD BE MADE PAYABLE TO ‘THE TOM MAYNARD TRUST’
The establishment of the Tom Maynard Trust is to be supported by individuals connected with the two county cricket clubs Tom represented during his playing career – Surrey and Glamorgan – and one of the Trustees will also be a nominee of the Professional Cricketers’ Association, with whom the Trust is expected to work closely as it grows and develops.
The Big Bike Ride
The Trust supports all sorts of different fundraising activities and is grateful to the many generous people who have helped to raise money for us. Events have included bike rides – Cardiff to London, two stages of l’Etape du Tour in France in 2013 and 2014, and the Big Bike Ride, in conjunction with the PCA Benevolent Fund, in October 2013. There have been sponsored swims across the English Channel and numerous individual challenges carried out in support of what we do.
