    Izzy Gurney

    Young Ambassador
    Izzy's passion for cricket and keen interest in empowerment in the developing world led her to work with Afghan Connection from the age of 16. She has organised cricket-related fundraising events for AC, including 'Playing for Pitches' which enjoyed the support of former England captains Graham Gooch and Alastair Cook. Izzy keeps wicket for the Bucks County Women and coaches youth teams at her club and for the County. Away from the wicket, she plays flute and tenor saxophone, and has just completed her term of office as a member of Bedford's Youth Parliament. Izzy plans to study geography at a university (with cricket facilities!) in the autumn with a view to continuing to engage with the wider world.
