Do something amazing for autism!

The National Autistic Society, in collaboration with the Anderson Foundation, has launched the Anderson Foundation Challenge to raise awareness of autism among coaches, education professionals, parents, children and young people.

The challenge is simple: we are inviting all clubs, activity groups and schools in the UK to register do something amazing for autism. How about a ‘Walk for wonga’ sponsored walk, cycling the length of John O’Groats on a gym bike (between members of your club) or a sponsored sport-a-thon? The money you raise will help us to provide much-needed services and support to people affected by autism across the UK.

Derbyshire multi-skills day

We're delighted to be holding a multi-skills event at Derbyshire County Cricket Club on 28 June! Both morning and afternoon sessions are available. Your club members or pupils will be able to:

  • play on the historic Derbyshire cricket ground
  • enjoy a fully inclusive skills course covering three disciplines: cricket, football and rugby
  • coaches from three professional clubs
  • sessions suitable for all ages and abilities.


Each child or young person who attends will get a certificate. Parents and supporters are also welcome, and there is free parking at the cricket ground.

Please register in advance for this event. Call our Supporter Care team on 0808 800 1050 or email

Morning session: 9.30am-11.45am
Afternoon session: 1.00pm-3.15pm
