Supporting The Tom Maynard Trust & Tom Maynard Scholarship in Millfield School.
Tom Maynard 25th March 1989 – 18th June 2012
The Tom Maynard Memorial Ball has been organised in this young star’s honour and memory, and will be held on Wednesday May 8, 2013 at a venue close to Tom’s heart, The Kia Oval in London. Funds raised through this event, will be donated to The Tom Maynard Trust, which offers financial help and training support for the development of aspiring but disadvantaged cricketers and other sportspeople. The Tom Maynard Scholarship to Millfield School will offer a talented young sports person the opportunity to receive an excellent education alongside an outstanding sports programme.
With your help we hope to raise £1 million over the next five years for this incredibly worthy cause, which could change the lives of aspiring but disadvantaged sportspeople, by offering vital financial and educational support. One bright young talent will be nurtured through a rare scholarship at one of the most prestigious sporting schools in the world, whilst others will benefit from ongoing support through the allocation of bursaries, help with training, kit and equipment or overseas placements through the Trust.
The Tom Maynard Memorial Ball will be a relaxed evening where guests will have the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of the greatest sporting heroes of today. Amongst many others, we look forward to welcoming the great Gareth Edwards from the British Lions, the current England Rugby Captain Chris Robshaw, Darren Gough, several Olympians and of course an esteemed list of cricket legends.
You are invited to join us in a celebration of Tom’s life with a sparkling evening of entertainment and fine dining amongst the stars. We need your help to raise as many funds as possible to open doors for other young talents, so they can follow in Tom’s footsteps and pursue their sporting dream.
