StreetChance cricket project Redbridge Rangers wins outstanding youth project award at Lord's

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Cricket project wins national award Cricket project wins national award

A girls’ cricket project has won a national award.

Redbridge Rangers, based at Woodbridge High School, in St Barnabas Road, Woodford Green, was recognised at a StreetChance event at Lord’s Cricket Ground on Thursday.

StreetChance is an initiative run by the Cricket Foundation which uses cricket to engage young people from a range of backgrounds in areas affected by youth crime and anti-social behaviour.

Leader of the project, Hannah Newman, said: “It’s amazing to know that the hard work has paid off.

"I never thought when I came to the StreetChance awards a year ago, and was inspired by the winners that day, that I’d be back picking up an award a year later.

"It’s absolutely incredible and is a great feeling, StreetChance has helped me massively and coaching has really helped my confidence."
