*28 Not Out presents T20 MAX*

We are excited to announce the inaugural T20 MAX cricket tournament and fundraising day to help raise money for the Max Hunter Fund within the Mintridge Foundation.

Come and join us to smile, laugh and play in loving memory of our boy Max. The day will be centred around one of the sports he loved, at a place where we made some hilarious memories!

We can’t promise the highest standard of cricket...but we can promise an action packed day with some key highlights below:

- Four team cricket tournament

- Live music from The Alice Band

- Paying bar and bbq

- Auction

- Raffle

- And much more...

We are always looking for helpers so if you would like to get involved or have any questions for the committee then email us at t20max.fund@gmail.com

Note: We are closely monitoring government guidelines relating COVID-19 and will ensure any restrictions are properly followed. If there any changes to the event following updates from the government then we will provide updates as they emerge.

*WHAT IS #28NOTOUT & THE MAX HUNTER FUND?*

As a group of friends, we have been deeply shaken by the loss of our dear friend, Max Hunter who died by suicide in August 2019, aged 28.

Suicide and mental health continue to be incredibly difficult topics to talk about, particularly for young people and that is why we are determined to change that narrative.

Max was a great supporter of the Mintridge Foundation and enjoyed fundraising for the sports charity including the #Miles4Mintridge cycle in May 2019. Max was the biggest believer in using sport for positive change, he particularly loved rugby (an avid Northampton Saints fan) and cricket. Max also loved using sport to help his mood, notably golf. Sport and mental health has a strong connection.

We have found that it’s not always as simple as “opening up”, but what we want to encourage is for everyone to acknowledge their feelings on a regular basis and that is why we have created the Max Hunter Fund within the Mintridge Foundation.

The Mintridge Foundation is a registered charity dedicated to enhancing life skills in young people through sport. We provide a support network for young people by harnessing the power of positive sporting role models. The Mintridge Foundation assists young people of all ages, abilities and physical capabilities to develop confidence and resilience, and creates awareness of the importance of mental and physical wellbeing through sport.

Mintridge's team of Ambassadors - Olympians, Paralympians and other professional sports stars from over 20 sports, both team and individual - work with young people in schools, clubs and academies across the UK. Starting with visits including assemblies, coaching clinics and classroom sessions tailored to each organisation’s requirements, ambassadors can then provide one- on- one remote mentoring in a safeguarded environment, delivered via technology such as Skype, FItSwarm and Playwaze to build a lasting legacy for individuals.

The Mintridge Foundation’s successes demonstrate the incredible power of sport; from a mentee’s selection to represent Great Britain in their chosen field to enabling disabled children to find confidence and happiness just through participation. Understanding life after sport, we also support our Ambassadors in their transition from active sport to the next stage of their careers.

Valuable funds raised will go towards keeping our much-loved friend’s fun, caring and sporting memory alive as well as changing perceptions and challenging stereotypes in the process. We will deliver mentoring programmes across the UK focussing on Max’s favourite sports and encouraging a new dialogue around how to look after our mental health just as we do our physical.
