Chance To Shine Pay Tribute To Don Robson

Chance to Shine was saddened to learn of the passing of Don Robson. Alongside being the driving force behind the establishment of Durham as a first-class county, Don was a former trustee of the Cricket Foundation charity, renamed as Chance to Shine in 2015.

He played a key role at the charity and the decision in 1996 to become independent when the England and Wales Cricket Board assumed responsibility for managing all cricket in England and Wales.

He was a hugely influential figure and his passion and loyalty for recreational cricket was of huge benefit to the people of Durham, the North-East and the game.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.
