The PCA Charity

There are many worthy and often very needy cases among cricketers and their dependents, who played in the era before the PCA came into being and, our increased profile with past players means that more and more cases of need are coming to light.

The Professional Cricketers’ Association Charity is run by a board of Trustees chaired by David Graveney. The Trustees work tirelessly to visit the beneficiaries of the Charity to ensure they are in good health. At present we are assisting more than 30 cases, but our funds only allow us to make contributions at Christmas and during the summer holidays.

The Hornsby Professional Cricketers' Charity


The Hornsby Professional Cricketers Charity is run along similar lines to the Professional Cricketers’ Charity.

The Charity was set up in 1955 by John Hornsby and has several well known cricketing names acting as Trustees including Roger Knight, Mickey Stewart and David Collier.

It already looks after up to 12 people and helps in many ways, including holidays and healthcare.

Its primary aim is to assist players, or past players, who may be struggling with issues that life can throw up. Invariably, people who fall upon hard times are reluctant to ask for help.

Perhaps you know somebody who could do with help in some way?
