The Prime Ministers Backyard Cricket Game
Hosted at Kirribilli House in conjunction with Nova Entertainment. Fitzy, Wippa, and PM Scott Morrison play a backyard cricket match.
Fitzy and Wippa each had a side consisting of various celebrities and lucky radio listeners. Celebrity players at the inaugural event included Scott Morrison, Guy Sebastian (who took home most valuable player honours), Sam Frost, Karl Stefanovic, Brett Lee, Tom Williams, Mel McLaughlin, and Ed Cowan.
As part of the event, Nova generously donated for each of the first five wickets taken, resulting in a $25,000 donation that will go an extraordinarily long way in supporting tertiary education.
National Backyard Cricket
National Backyard Cricket is a community event to raise funds to level the global playing field in education. We believe Australians can come together to create transformative educational opportunities for disadvantaged young men and women in cricket-playing nations.
The LBW Trust has now distributed the $xxx funds raised during the inaugural National Backyard Cricket program , held last summer (January 2021) to country libraries across Australia and tertiary education projects in India and Sri Lanka.

The Batting for Change XI raises funds for Batting for Change programs as well as building valuable awareness of the importance of women’s education in the developing world.
