The Edgbaston Foundation is the official charity of Warwickshire County Cricket Club/Edgbaston Stadium. The charity aims to harness our position to influence positive social change within the local community.
We caught up with head of community engagement, Ravi Masih, to reflect on a busy year for the Edgbaston Foundation and look back at how the Foundation has become a vehicle for change in the community. The Foundation hopes that sport can be a unifier and a source for motivation to improve life outcomes and to help people feel like they belong, not just to the club, but to society. In the short video below we look back at how the Foundation has continued to build established projects such as the bat giveaway and also look at new initiatives that have been devolved with new stakeholders around the business and sports community.
