Homies and The Popz Compton Cricket Club & Father Chris Riley off the Streets in Sydney

The Compton Cricket Club are coming back to Sydney, staying at the Hughenden February 2011

– they are committed to helping kids in trouble. 

– sponsorship by The Hughenden is natural with its cricketing history and being the home of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators SCBWI, Australia & New Zealand.

The ‘Homies and the Popz’ Compton Cricket Club (CCC) is the only all American born Exhibition cricket team in the world today.

The “Homies” mission is to curb the negative effects of gang activities amongst the youth of Compton, South Central Los Angeles and all inner cities, addressing homelessness through the ethics of Cricket.

Last year, they  collaborated with the charities Father Chris Riley Youth off the Streets as well as Urban Seeds Credo Cricket.

They are global ambassadors of goodwill & peace for urban young people in trouble through Cricket.

I'm a writer committed to kids in particular. Adults are good too. Want to bring hope through story to my readers. Awarded an Order of Australia, Lady Cutler Award and a Lifetime International Award for Literacy for my body of work, spreading literacy is really important. I'm head of SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand, patron of Monkey Baa Theatre, Ambassador for the Premier's Reading Challenge, Writer Ambassador for Room to Read ... among other roles. I also love heritage and adapting to enhance the lives of people today, which is why I restored The Hughenden Hotel 1870s and The Residences Centennial Park - the only homes in the parklands which are open now for accommodation, events and lots of nature.
