Goochie's Coast 2 Coast 2018

PCA President Graham Gooch is set to take on the Wainwright Coast to Coast walk to raise funds for the PCA Benevolent Fund & Graham Gooch Scholarship.

Gooch, his partner & three friends will undertake the 193-mile hike, which starts with placing your feet in the water off the coast of St Bees in Cumbria on September 17 and ending with your feet in the North Sea in Robin Hood’s Bay, North Yorkshire on September 29.

“We want to raise money for all the great things the PCA supply for present players, past players and future cricketers,” said Gooch.

“I’ve seen first-hand what work goes into supporting these cricketers and to help this is something I’m very passionate about.”

Gooch is encouraging day walkers to join him on the gruelling 13-day challenge to support with fundraising. For more information on how to get involved contact Sam Relf –

Cricket United

A day that sees the PCA Benevolent Fund team up with the Lord’s Taverners and Chance to Shine to help change lives through cricket in the UK’s biggest cricket fundraising and awareness day.

The Kia Oval turns blue and it’s fast becoming a standout day on the cricketing calendar, gaining importance with the broadcasters, players and spectators.

It is becoming tradition for the England team to do doodles of each other or cricketing legends that are auctioned off for charity. This effort from Jimmy Anderson fetched over £2,000 in 2017.
