Newham changemaker

Ravinder is the rst Newham born England International cricketer. As an elite sportsman, he is a role model to aspiring sportsmen and women in the borough and spends much of his spare time supporting young cricketers at Frenford Youth Club.

“I was very fortunate growing up to have a local cricket club I could join, which kept me very active and provided me with a safe place to socialise. It’s important that there are physical activities and environments that suit a variety of needs for those in Newham, whether it’s a specific sport, such as a cricket, or general health activities such as walking and cycling.”

– Ravinder Bopara, Professional Cricketer
