Chief Executive to give evidence to the House of Lords

The Chance to Shine Chief Executive, Laura Cordingley, will give evidence to the House of Lords National Plan for Sport and Recreation Committee on Wednesday 10 March.

Laura will appear alongside Oliver Scadgell from the LTA and Mark Hardie, CEO of Access Sport. The session will focus on youth sport and the impact that sport has on communities.

The committee has been appointed to consider the effectiveness of sport and recreation policies and is accepting evidence in the inquiry into the case for a national plan for sport and recreation.

The inquiry has been running since October 2020 and heard evidence from a range of individuals and organisations including government departments, journalists, charities and national governing bodies.

Speaking ahead of her appearance, Laura Cordingley said: “I’m very pleased to be able to give evidence to the committee. It is absolutely vital that our society is supported to be active and I welcome the committee’s focus on this. I am looking forward to sharing the experiences of Chance to Shine over the last 15 years and how we have supported over 5 million young people to be active and to develop as individuals through playing cricket.”

Laura will be speaking to the committee over video link on Wednesday 10 March at 4.30PM. You can watch the session here:
