We regularly organise physical fundraising challenges, such as three previous Big Bike Rides & the upcoming Three Peaks Challenge, which takes place in October 2019. Alternatively, you can partner with the PCA to gain access to beneficiary events such as the Trust Golf Day and PCA Summer Garden Party. The biggest fundraising night of the year regularly proves to be the annual NatWest PCA Awards, where the Trust hosts a live and silent auction as well as a raffle alongside the awards ceremony.
Three Peaks Challenge - October 2019
Almost 50 walkers are challenging themselves to complete the famous Three Peaks Challenge this October in a joint initiative to raise valuable funds for the Professional Cricketers’ Trust and Tom Maynard Trust.
The physically challenging adventure takes place between October 11-13. Our fundraisers will take on the three highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales.
Considered one of Britain’s toughest outdoor challenges, the National 3 Peaks Challenge takes in the dizzy heights of Ben Nevis (1,344m), Scafell Pike (978m) and Snowdon (1,085m). Over the course of three days, walkers will embark on a 26-mile trek and ascend to a total height of almost 3,000m.
Goochie’s Coast 2 Coast 2018
PCA President Graham Gooch took on the Wainwright Coast to Coast walk to raise funds for the Professional Cricketers’ Trust & Graham Gooch Scholarship. The challenge raised over £23,000 which was evenly split between the two charitable causes.
Big Bike Ride 3 – October 2017
Big Bike Ride 3 was the hardest yet. Over five days, 60 cyclists completed the 360 mile route and 26,000 feet climb with former England internationals completing the challenge and raising over £100k for the Professional Cricketers’ Trust and the Tom Maynard Trust.

During the 2017/18 Ashes campaign, England supporters raise over £36,000 for Professional Cricketers’ Trust. The England supporters’ club’s fundraising was part of the Professional Cricketers’ Trust’s Legacy Year Appeal which was set-up to raise money in the PCA’s 50th anniversary year.
Cricket United was a day in the calendar for five years which saw the Professional Cricketers’ Trust 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. Originated in 2013, we are looking at plans for the future.
The Professional Cricketers’ Trust and the PCA run a number of events throughout the year which help to raise valuable funds for current and ex-players who need it most. Find out how you can contribute, whether it’s by way of attending one of our events or by hosting your own.
