An open letter to the team at Cricket World Cup

Dear Team, Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

As your New Zealand Charity Partner for ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 we would like to say a huge thank you for your support.

From our volunteers, patients, SunSmart schools and Cancer Society staff right across New Zealand, thank you for giving us the opportunity to be a part of the matches and coaching clinics. Your hospitality and support were second to none.

Many patients who attended the games are going through difficult times and it was fabulous for them and some of the volunteers and staff that work so hard to have a day out at the cricket and be a part of the wonderful atmosphere.

The tournament has been an exciting time for us, seeing our messages proudly portrayed at the games, Cricket World Cup volunteers looking great, role-modelling in their broad-brimmed hats showing visitors to our country how to stay safe in the harsh sun.

As a charity we really appreciate the opportunities that partnering with an event like the ICC Cricket World Cup brings.

Go the Black Caps.

With warmest wishes,
Claire Austin, Chief Executive,
The Cancer Society of New Zealand.
