Geldards Partner, Ed Meggitt, has stepped down as Chairman of Lord’s Taverners Wales charity, having successfully completed 10 years leading the UK’s leading youth cricket and sports charity in the region.

Celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2020, The Lords Taverners enhances the lives of disadvantaged and disabled young people through sport and recreation. In doing so, the programmes support some of the most marginalised and at-risk young people in the UK.

Ed signed off his time as Chairman with two highly successful Christmas lunches which raised over £23k for the charity. During his 10-year tenure, the charity has raised and distributed over £1M in Wales on a range of items, equipment and projects. This includes the grant of 16 specially adapted minibuses, 27 sports wheelchairs, 8 school play/sensory equipment, school cricket bags and AstroTurf sports pitches. The Taverners innovative Wicketz programme was also launched in Wales last year, a cricket programme aimed at supporting young people in challenging communities and it has had a very impressive start.

Following Ed’s departure, Andrew Gibson of Cushman and Wakefield takes over as the new Chairman of the charity in Wales.

Commenting on his tenure as Chairman, Ed, said:

“I am delighted at the way the charity has evolved over the years by extending its disability programmes and engaging in challenging community programmes. The work of the team here in Wales and London has enabled over £1M to be spent by the Taverners in Wales over the last 10 years. I am incredibly proud of that achievement and incredibly thankful to our supporters who have enabled us to help so many young people here in Wales."
