Who Are We – The Lords Taverners
The Lord’s Taverners is a national charity which was formed in 1950 with the mission “to enhance the prospects of disadvantaged and disabled young people using cricket and other forms of sport and recreation to engage with them.”
The organisation is run through regional branches which raise money at a local level and use it to fund local sporting and recreational activities for youngsters with special needs as well as children in disadvantaged areas.
Our programmes support some of the most marginalised and at risk young people in the UK.
The Lord’s Taverners – East Midlands Branch
The East Midlands Lord’s Taverners region covers the counties of: Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland. Events and fundraising activities predominately take place in the Leicester and Nottingham areas.
The region has three sub-committees under the Chairmanship of Ian Guyler: Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire.
We all work together to create fund raising events and opportunities spread across the various counties. Over the last few years, the Leicestershire Branch in particular has been active in this respect, organising original and fun events particularly aimed at corporate entity participation – events such as the ‘Y’ Factor, the ‘L’ Factor and The Gauntlet, further details of which can be found on the “What we have achieved” page of this website.
