Durham Cricket’s Oliver King fundraises for Super 1s

Durham Cricket’s Development Officer Oliver King is backing the Lord’s Taverners’ Super 1s fundraiser by tasking himself to complete 100km next week in aid of the campaign.

Oliver, who is Durham Cricket’s Disability Cricket Development Officer and delivers the Super 1s project across Durham for the Lord’s Taverners, is joining the charity’s fundraising campaign by contributing 100km.

Oliver will be joining another 11 Super 1s Development Officers from across the country, who will run, swim, cycle or walk the 1084.7 kilometres between the most southern (Plymouth in Devon) and northern (Tain in Scotland) Super 1s hubs, whilst raising money for the charity.

The Super 1s programme gives disabled young people the chance to play regular sport, with four hubs taking place across Durham.

There are over 100 hubs across England and Scotland that offer weekly sessions where participants can stay active, make friends and develop key life skills.

In the circumstances of the current pandemic, it’s important to sustain these opportunities for the young people on the Super 1s programme and the fundraising campaign is set up to support the project in these challenging times.

Oliver has decided to challenge himself further by completing his target within five days, rather than throughout the month – from Wednesday 21st October until Sunday 25th October – in the gym: on the bike, rower and SkiErg.

You can support Oliver by donating:
