The Solvents Industry Association Spring Dinner, held at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London on 21st March raised £1,015 for the cricket-related charity, Chance to Shine.

Chance to Shine is a national charity that aims to give all children the opportunity to play, learn and develop through cricket, which can help to develop the personal, social and physical skills of the 500,000 children that work with the charity every year.

Laura Cordingley, Chief Executive at Chance to Shine said, ‘We’re very grateful for the support of the Solvents Industry Association and I hope that everyone involved enjoyed their night at the Home of Cricket. The generous donation from the evening will help us to spread the power of cricket in schools and communities, supporting many children across the country to play, learn and develop through the sport.’

SIA General Secretary, Andrew Norman said, ‘The generosity of the SIA Membership again raised a staggering amount on the night through our traditional raffle and we are delighted to be able to assist with this excellent cause.’
