On Friday, Peshala and Hamish from the Bats4Life Team were fortunate enough to attend a meeting with the head of All Nations Social Cricket, Abdul Razzaq, where we were blown away by both his story and the great success he has had with his organisation.
Through the managing and playing of cricket in both the summer and winter, he was able to unite many disadvantaged peoples in his community under their one common passion, creating a wonderful culture of inclusion and enjoyment for all.
The problem he had noticed was that during the cricket off-season especially, those who faced hardships such as asylum seekers fell back into a negative state and mindset; however, through his great work he has maintained the positivity of such people and brought them together across the country.
His work through All Nations strives for goals very similar to our own, and as a result we are very pleased to announce our partnership with him and his organisation.
We will be donating several bats and other cricketing equipment to All Nations in order to help them in their initiative, and we look forward to further supporting them in their future endeavours!

Given you are here we have a small favour to ask.
Bats4Life operates solely on the monetary donations of people like yourself. To run Bats4Life, and to continue to help hundreds integrate into society and thrive through sport, it takes a lot of hard work, time and money.
Furthermore, we desperately want to continue to expand our outreach and assistance to the disadvantaged and the only thing holding us back is a lack of resources, so before you go please consider making a small donation (could be as little as $5).
Your generosity will directly impact the lives of many.
