Inspiring Your Local Community
”It was a blessing for us to get involved in the Ruth Strauss Foundation campaign in 2021. We wanted to bring it to our club to inspire the youngsters within the community, and to showcase the power of volunteering and support towards a worthy cause. We felt #RedforRuth was well received by both our young participants and the parents.
What was rewarding for us is that the children continued to talk about the event, even weeks after the event had taken place and they are already coming up with new plans for next year. We felt we have ignited that passion and commitment within them and plan to have #RedforRuth as a permanent event within the Cavaliers’ calendar.Annanth KumarHead Coach, Cavaliers Cricket Academy

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! We’re proud of the support of the cricket family towards our cause, but this isn’t a campaign just for cricket clubs. Anyone can get involved in hosting their own #RedforRuth event, whether you’re a school, sports club, community group, workplace, or any other group.
No, you can host your own #RedforRuth event whenever you choose, it’s up to you. However, most of the events around the country will be taking place in this period, as we’re aiming for as many people as possible to turn red around the #RedforRuth Day during the Test Match at Lord’s to raise awareness of our mission.
Whatever you like! However you chose to raise funds is up to you and your group. We’ve loads of ideas in our welcome pack and keep an eye on our social media channels for creative things other clubs are doing.
