The Benevolent Fund is part of the Professional Cricketers’ Association’s commitment to helping former and current players and their dependants in times of hardship and upheaval, or to readjust to the world beyond the game.
Few careers carry as much uncertainty as that of a professional cricketer.
The demands of playing any sport for a living leave little time to consider and plan for unforeseen misfortunes in the future.
A concerted and proactive drive to help and educate on all health and wellbeing issues is key in helping to negate problems further down the line.
The fund also supports players and their dependants who might be in need of a helping hand with medical advice, a much-needed operation or those who require specialist advice, care or assistance.
Benevolent issues are those that pull at everyone’s heartstrings and can sometimes be the difference between life and death. This emphasises the important work that the PCA does in generating funds.
